h2. Observing Plan and Goals for the Night
27

    
28
*Install new hexapod LUT to validate before TCS engineering nights.*
29
# [[Calibration_Observations|Standard bias and dome flat]] sequence during afternoon _(no more u band)_
30
# Please try to get dome open for temperature equilibration at earliest appropriate time, be sure all cooling/ventilation systems are on.
31

    
32
Monitor Conditions:
33
# Make sure RASICAM is online if weather conditions permit.
34

    
35
Expectation for tonight is clear weather, decent seeing, tracking with modest ellipticity (<~0.1), poor tracking N of zenith.
36

    
37
*Obstac should be configured to allow observations to X<1.5*
38

    
39
Prioritization for tonight's observations:
40
# [[Calibration_Observations|Photometric standards]] sequence as soon as dark enough (ugrizY in 3 fields at different airmasses,  preferably one at X < 1.25, one at X = 1.25-1.65 and one at X > 1.65) and again at handover to Dara.  _Conditions: clear or thin clouds, any seeing._
41
# *Filter donuts:* 30s exposure 1500 um out of focus in filters gizY. Also take 1 r-band donut at each science pointing to confirm LUT. _Conditions required: anything but thick clouds._
42
# [[Sky_Brightness_Measurements]] At fields from Paul.  _Conditions: clear, after twilight._
43
# *Southern cluster fields:* Full-depth izY(r) imaging on RXT 2248.7-4431, and El Gordo,  at dec < -40.  _Conditions: clear or thin clouds, images <1.2"_
44
# *Bullet cluster:* Complete last 2 pointings in rizY.
45
# DECal sweeps _Conditions required:_ Any.
