Nightlog 2011-05-14

SA: Petri
SO: Siphelo
Others: Tim, Eric, Marsha, Steve P.


- A productive night with excellent conditions once again.
Etalons not available for the night.

- Had a strange pattern appear on the RSS detector, solved by
resetting the CCD.

- Numerous RSS team commissioning tasks and targets, including
extreme red settings and massively multiplex spectroscopy.

- Successfully guided with a 13.5 mag star in bright moon light
for some time. Getting very good practice on spectroscopic
acquisitions and guiding in general.
