Night Log 2015-08-02

Others: Enrico, Amanda & interns


High wind-speeds drove thin moonlit clouds across the sky all night. With both HRS and Fabry-Perot unavailable due to technical issues, our productivity was severely hampered. RSS articulation errors added to our frustrations, but we could recover those and continue to take data.

Nevertheless, data were taken for:

2015-1-SCI-056 P2 RSS (x2) (Observing spectra of Pluto as it rotates, in support of NASA's New Horizons mission.)
2015-1-SCI-045 P3 RSS (x3) (Searching for binaries in unusual central stars of planetary nebulae)
2015-1-SCI-017 P3 SCAM (Observations of evolved massive stars revealed with Spitzer and WISE)
2015-1-MLT-003 P4 RSS (x2) (We aim to study a number of candidate ultracool objects, which should include new brown dwarfs.)
2015-1-SCI-062 P4 SCAM (Studying the long-term behavior of classical novae after their eruptions)
