h2. Observing Plan and Goals for the Night
# Standard bias and dome flat sequence during afternoon.
# Dome open for temperature equilibration at earliest appropriate time
Prioritization for tonight's observations:
# Standard stars if photometric.
# Make sure obstac keeps filling queue and SISPI keeps loading exposures.
# Monitor pointing and offseting behavior during SN observations.
# Morning standards, if photometric

# Monitor ObsTac.
Expect lots of y-band because the Moon is right in the face the first half
of night. Later i, and Z. SN: X3r, C3r, C3i if seeing is bad.
