Observers: Stefan Taubenberger, Stephan Hachinger
Data reduction team: Nancy Elias-Rosa, Antonia Morales-Garoffolo

2nd regular night of subrun (first SOFI; late night: switched to EFOSC).
All observations turned out to be good quality unless noted otherwise (**).
All EFOSC spec acquisitions with narrowslit template, slit pos. stable at y=992
except for last (stdstar) observation y=991.

initial weather cond:         humidity ~35%, wind ~7m/s, ~clear sky
middle-of-night weather cond:
 humidity ~30%, wind ~10m/s, ~clear sky 
late-night weather cond:      humidity ~40%, wind ~10m/s
