Night Report Page - 20120818

Observers : C. Inserra (QUB) Flora Cellier-Holzem (LPHNE) 

Data analysts on duty : M. Fraser, D. Wright, A. Pastorello

Time shared with Benetti Large Program (BLP) over the second three nights rather than the breakdown of firewalled nights - this was due to RA pressue ranges of targets and having to work around the weather. Data reduced, as much as possible with the PESSTO pipeline

Total time spent BLP on 20120818 : 7h 

Total time overall in Aug 2012 : 23h (out of total of about 42hr clear)
