Night Log 2017-03-01

SA: Rosalind
SO: Veronica
Others: Etienne for cable wrap connection error


A fairly productive start to the week, with mostly reasonable seeing. Some technical trouble with the waveplate detente again, resulting in both science and sky polarimetry blocks rejected, and some technical downtime for loose wires connecting to the cable wrap. Thanks very much to Etienne for coming up!

Data taken for:

2016-2-SCI-051 P1 RSS (Measuring galaxy redshifts for the MeerKAT Laduma survey.)
2016-2-SCI-017 P1 RSS (x2) (Searching for high redshift quasars for the MeerKAT Absorption Line Survey (MALS))
2016-2-MLT-005 P1 HRS (Investigating the chemical composition of bright star beta Pic and its nearby circumstellar material)
2016-2-SCI-009 P2 RSS (x2) (Spectroscopy of K2 White Dwarfs)
2016-2-SCI-021 P2 RSS (Line profile variations in PKS 1020-103)
2016-2-LSP-001 P3 RSS (Observing optical counterparts of transient objects)
2016-2-SCI-034 P3 HRS (x2) (Searching for evolved binary stars with long orbital periods)
2016-2-SCI-058 P4 SCAM (Studying the long-term behavior of classical novae after their eruptions )
2016-2-SCI-007 P4 RSS (Looking at chromospheric emission in stars which host exoplanets)
