IMPORTANT NOTE:  The problem with the structure in the bias is not completely solved. It has a much lower amplitude than what was seen in images of Nov 25 but it varies with time, it can be different from one bias frame to the next. We decided to not do faint objects because they would be the most affected by this extra noise. There is hope that the problem could be fixed for tomorrow.

OBSERVATIONS:  start regularly at sunset.
