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

3rd night of 3rd subrun (only EFOSC2) -- last night of run.
All observations turned out to be good quality unless noted otherwise (**).
All acqusitions for spectra with NarrowSlit template, slit stable at y=992.
Note: airmass values are estimates based on visibility chart (exact vals pls see files) -- this has been the same in our other night reports.

initial weather cond:          humidity ~15%, wind speed ~8km/s, sky clear
middle-of-night weather cond:
  humidity ~10%, wind speed ~12km/s, sky clear  
late-night weather cond:      

early eve   calibration OBs:
            domeflat-specpol, arc-specpol
            (slitpos-specpol not done: yesterday slit pos. turned out OK w/o check OB)
            PESSTO_calib
            PESSTO_bias
