Night report 2013-11-30

Observers: Michel Dennefeld, Joe Lyman, David Bersier        TO: Ariel

Support team:  J Maund

TAT on duty: Andrea Pastorello, Annalisa de Cia


Instruments: EFOSC2


beginning: wind speed 2 m/s; humidity 5 % ; clear

middle: wind speed 5 m/s; humidity 18 %;  clear

end: wind speed 8 m/s; humidity 19 %;  clear

Afternoon CALIBRATIONS: EFOSC2 bias, arcs, dome flats

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. On science frames during the night, there is virtually nothing to be seen, maybe science data are fine after all.

OBSERVATIONS:  start regularly at sunset.  Sunset at UT23:36, start of night at UT01:01

Evening sky flats: g (x5), z (x5), r (x1)
