Night Log 2015-02-04

SA: Luke
SO: Veronica


Full moon night with variable seeing and high humidity closing us prematurely at 1:20am. Nevertheless, 2x P2 targets, 2x P3 targets and a P4 target observed, along with extensive calibrations for both HRS and RSS. Unable to perform the planned SAMS mirror engineering tests due to slightly to high wind speeds at the start of the night.

Data taken for:
2014-2-SCI-047 P2 RSS (Study of the properties of thin and thick disks of galaxy IC2531)
2014-2-SCI-028 P2 HRS (To determine if C enhanced Metal-poor stars without heavy element enhancement is due to binarity.)
2014-2-SCI-010 P3 RSS (Spectroscopic observations of the pulsating, eclipsing binary 1SWASP J050634)
2014-2-SCI-060 P3 RSS (Searching for binaries in unusual central stars of planetary nebulae)
2014-2-MLT-003 P4 RSS (Study, and detailed classification, of a number of proposed very cool astronomical objects)
