Night Log 2015-12-10

SA: Encarni
SO: Veronica
Others: Ana, Liam, Simon W. Timmy and Thabelo to help with a wayward mirror segment.


Another dark, clear night with sub-arcsecond seeing - we could get used to this! :)

We had a slow start due to a technical problem but the rest of the night was pretty much smooth sailing. We took our first block for RSS polarimetry science verification and science data for:

2015-2-SCI-061 P0 RSS (x2) (SALT follow-up of type Ia supernovae to study their spectral properties at targeted redshifts)
2015-2-MLT-006 P1 RSS (Characterising Strong Gravitational Lensing systems)
2015-2-SCI-026 P1 RSS (Probing the time variability of QSO absorption line)
2015-2-SCI-033 P1 SCAM (Observations of Dwarf Novae in the Large Magellanic Cloud)
2015-2-MLT-002 P2 RSS (Study of the evolution of lenticular galaxies.)
2015-2-SCI-041 P2 RSS (Spectroscopic classification of candidate magnetic cataclysmic variables in the CRTS)
