Night Log 2015-01-30

SA: �ric
SO: Fred
Others: Chris Coetze, Brian Chaboyer


The night started with very strong wind (around 60 km/h).
Weather was cooperative this time, and we could obtain data.
We observed, among other things, an asteroid classified as Near-Earth Object recently discovered.

But unfortunately, a technical problem had us closed towards the end of the night. We took advantage of the telescope being closed to perform more tests for the mirror.

We could gather data for :
2014-2-SCI-064 P0 RSS (x2) (Rapid response spectroscopy of newly discovered Near Earth Asteroids.)
2014-2-SCI-060 P3 RSS (Searching for binaries in unusual central stars of planetary nebulae)
2014-2-SCI-073 P3 RSS (Monitoring of the SMC LBV S18)
2014-2-MLT-003 P4 RSS (Study, and detailed classification, of a number of proposed very cool astronomical objects)
