Night Log 2013-04-14

SA: Tim
SO: Thea


yet another productive night with good, very steady seeing throughout. several instances with the guider EE50 at 1.2 or less. some thick mid to high level clouds for the first couple hours and then scattered light cirrus off and on through the night. relatively smooth sailing systems-wise with just a few minor glitches (cable wrap and PCON crash). FP and MOS behaved themselves. had to do three alignments, however, in spite of very stable temperatures and steady west wind. partly because the seeing was so good it wasn't possible to hide any sins.

accepted blocks for the following programs:
2012-2-RSA_UKSC-005 (P0 with parallel 1.0m observation)
2012-2-UNC_RSA_RU-002 (x2 FP)
2012-2-RU-001 (FP)

also attempted blocks for 2012-2-RSA_OTH-010 (abandoned due to clouds) and 2012-2-RSA_OTH-002 (abandoned due to poor stack and then PCON crash). also cleared out the calibrations tab of all outstanding entries. whew!
