Night Log 2016-04-11

SA: �ric
SO: Veronica


A night with poor weather conditions : mostly cloudy.
But a night extremely productive. Thanks to many programs that required medium to poor conditions, and to the size of our mirror that allows us to litteraly observe through the clouds, we have gathered a huge amount of data, for many different kind of programs, ranging from measuring the chemical composition of the first stars in our Galaxy to measuring the kinematic of gas in a (beautiful) galaxy located 4,5 mega parsecs (that is approximatively 15 million light years) from us: M83.
We have observed the following programs:
2015-2-SCI-008 P1 HRS (Determining the period of a multi-periodic pulsating binary system.)
2015-2-SCI-004 P1 RSS (x2) (A kinematic study of extraplanar diffuse ionized gas in the galaxy M83)
2015-2-SCI-029 P3 RSS (x7) (Spectroscopy of Kepler K2 White Dwarfs)
2015-2-SCI-063 P3 SCAM (Studying the long-term behavior of classical novae after their eruptions)
2015-2-SCI-043 P4 RSS (x13) (Spectroscopic observations of bright RR Lyrae variables)
2015-2-SCI-056 P4 HRS (x3) (Tracing the chemical history of our galaxy)
