Nightlog 2011-04-04

SA: David
SO: Siphelo
Others: Lisa, Hitesh (Dave C., James & Ken for a bit)


Excellent night, although SE wind, so seeing mediocre (~2").

SALTICAM SDSU brought back to life in the afternoon, but filter problems
remain. So stuck to V filter all night.

SALTICAM images with pellicle obtained. Images a little degraded (1.7 ->
2.2"), but were round and useful. Should be fine for bright stars, as
was intended.

More successful closed loop guidance tests on fainter stars.

Test of FT mode.
