Observers: Laurent Le Guillou, Kate Maguire

Data reduction team: Sylvain Baumont, Mark Sullivan

Observing with EFOSC2 the all night.


Seeing ~ 1" (beginning of the night)


EFOSC2 bias + arcs / dome flats + spectro-polarisation calibrations + skyflats UBVRi (partly)

A problem with the NTT azimuth axis occurred before the sky flats.

  UT 00:49     STD vma2
  UT 01:05     LSQ12dwl  gr13
  UT 01:37     SN2012dy  BVRi + gr11

NTT azimuth axis problem again (electromechanical problem).

Wind got stronger (~12 m/s). Pointing restricted to the southern targets.

  UT 03:08     SSS120810  BVRi
  UT 04:17     LSQ12gqn  gr11 + gr16
  UT 05:34     STD LTT3864
  UT 05:53     LSQ12hcu  gr13 *classification* (not enough flux, difficult to say anything about it)
  UT 06:28     LSQ12gpw  gr11 + gr16
  UT 07:22     LSQ12gxv  gr13 *classification* (dominated by galaxy spectrum, needs more processing)

EFOSC2 filter wheel and slit wheel blocked. Not enough time to fix it before sun rise.
