Night Log 2013-03-05

smooth first half with stable, excellent seeing and excellent IQ gave way to a second half that was almost completely lost due to inability to align the mirror sufficiently well. temperature and conditions were reasonably stable all night and wind was in the 20's so i really don't understand why we couldn't make it work any better. a real shame because the seeing was 1.5" or better all night and photometric outside of the first couple of hours.

took a first stab at setting up TF mode for operation. it still requires a few mods to PCON to support it and some more calibration data, but it otherwise seems to be working fine.

accepted blocks for the following programs:
2012-2-UNC_RSA-001 x2

observed, but rejected, blocks for the following programs:
2012-2-RSA_POL-001 (clouds)
2012-2-UNC_RSA-001 (bad alignment)
2012-2-UNC_RSA_RU-002 x2 (bad alignment)
