60-502 2019-10-03 01:28 SoftToO ZTF18abcfdzu, ZTF19abqwtfu, BD174708 ALCj030007 - ALCj030014, ALCj030038 - ALCj030043, ALCj030044 - ALCj030049 Observed
60-502 2019-10-16 01:48 SoftToO ZTF19aaypzsq, BD174708 ALCj160064-ALCj160076,ALCj160092-ALCj160100 First observervation was completed, then the observatory had to be closed because of clouds. The second observation was started with some fewer clouds but had to be stopped because of them again. Calibrations were done. Arcs must be checked. Second spectrum taken much later. If data unusable let us know. While no clouds, the seeing was good ~0.8. Observed
60-502 2019-10-21 00:51 SoftToO BD174708, ZTF19abqwtfu ALCj210137 -153 Observed
60-502 2019-10-22 00:48 SoftToO BD174708, ZTF19acctwpz ALCj220157 - ALCj220168 Observed
60-502 2019-10-25 00:00 SoftToO None High Clouds Failed
60-502 2019-10-29 01:27 SoftToO BD174708,ZTF19abqxibq,ZTF18aceqrrs ALCj290100 - ALCj290105,ALCj290130 - ALCj290135,ALCj290150 - ALCj290154 Targets observed in clear dusty skies with good seeing. Observed
60-502 2019-11-01 00:00 SoftToO The entire night was lost because of bad weather. Failed
60-502 2019-11-03 00:53 SoftToO HD19445, ZTF19abztknu ALCk030117 - ALCk030122, ALCk030123 - ALCk030128 Clear sky. All targets observed. Observed
60-502 2019-11-14 00:00 SoftToO None High wind speed and bad seeing. Failed
60-502 2019-11-17 01:29 SoftToO ZTF18achcpwu, ZTF19aalouag, ZTF18aceqrrs ALCk170185 - ALCk170189, ALCk170190 - ALCk170194, ALCk170195 - ALCk170199 Observed
60-502 2019-11-18 01:20 SoftToO ZTF19acjtkha, ZTF19acryurj, HD19445 ALCk180073 - ALCk180078, ALCk180101 - ALCk180106, ALCk180107 - ALCk180112 Observed in clear sky and good seeing conditions. Observed
60-502 2019-11-21 01:29 SoftToO BD174708, ZTF19abqxibq ALCk210021 - ALCk210033 Observed in clear skies with seeing above 1.4\'\'. Observed
60-502 2019-11-22 01:31 SoftToO BD174708, ZTF19abqwtfu, ZTF18abcfdzu ALCk220091 - 102, 169 - 176 observed. ZTF18abcfdzu very low as agreed. JHT Observed
60-502 2019-11-26 01:22 SoftToO ZTF19abcegvm, HD19445 ALCk260061-7, ALCk260071-4 All observations were done. Sky conditions were really good. HD19445 files were taken from another proposal with the same standard star. Observed
60-502 2019-12-01 01:30 SoftToO ZTF19acmelor, HD19445, ZTF19ackjjwf ALCl010067 - ALCl010072,ALCl010110 - ALCl010115,ALCl010122 - ALCl010131 Observed in clear skies with DIMM seeing 0.6-0.7 Observed
60-502 2019-12-14 00:27 SoftToO HD93521, ZTF19aavyvbn ALCl140109 - ALCl140114, ALCl140117 - ALCl140117, ALCl140119 - ALCl140124 Only the target ZTF19aavyvbn could be observed, so files ALCl140119 - ALCl140124 useful. Before and after clouds kept coming in. When the standard star was observed it was cloudy, so I mark it as failed. Observation of ZTF19acgjpgh was aborted so files ALCl140117 - ALCl140117 are not useful. Failed
60-502 2019-12-17 01:22 SoftToO ZTF19acgjpgh, HD93521, ZTF19aavyvbn ALCl170208 - ALCl170213, ALCl170214 - ALCl170219, ALCl170220 - ALCl170225 All observations completed as requested. Seeing was all the time below 1 arcsec. Weather was really good during all the observations. Observed
60-502 2019-12-29 00:00 SoftToO ZTF18aceqrrs, ZTF18abcfdzu ALCl290169 - ALCl290175,ALCl290225 - ALCl290231 Observed both targets in thin clouds with seeing around 1. Observed
60-502 2020-01-03 00:13 SoftToO HD93521, ZTF19aavyvbn ALDa030119 - ALDa030124, ALDa030148 - ALDa030150 ztf19aavyvbn_spec_1_3 was not visible in the raw frames and thus no spectroscopy was acquired. ZTF19aanijpu was observed due to lack of better targets, but failed to meet the 1.3\" requirement. It was observed under seeing of 2-3\". Observed
60-502 2020-01-13 01:26 SoftToO ZTF19abqwtfu, HD93521, ZTF20aaelulu ALDa130067 - ALDa130072, ALDa130152 - ALDa130157, ALDa130170 - ALDa130176 Observed all targets with seeing around 1.3 arcsec and clear sky. Observed
60-502 2020-01-15 01:33 SoftToO HD19445, ZTF19acyogrm, ZTF19acyggzu ALDa150063 - ALDa150074, ALDa150078 - ALDa150083 Observed in clear skies with good seeing. Observed
60-502 2020-01-20 01:29 SoftToO ZTF20aacgztv, HD19445, ZTF19adcfsad ALDa200070 - ALDa200075, ALDa200076 - ALDa200081, ALDa200132 - ALDa200137 All targets were observed. The seeing started to be around 1 arcsec, but then it got worse (1.4 or more). At that time the lower hatch had to be closed (high wind speed) and the standard star was below it to be observed also for the 1.3\" slit, so HD19445 was observed only for the 1\" slit. The standard star GD71 was observed for prop no 59-506 with 1.3\" arcsec, as well as SP0644+375 for staff targets, so maybe one of them can be used. Observed
60-502 2020-01-21 01:41 SoftToO ZTF19abucwzt, HD93521, ZTF19ackjszs ALDa210007 - ALDa210012, ALDa210013 - ALDa210018, ALDa210019 - ALDa210024 All targets observed. The seeing was poor. Observed
60-502 2020-01-23 00:00 SoftToO ZTF19abucwzt ALDa230042 - ALDa230046 Failed due to weather. Failed
60-502 2020-01-27 01:29 SoftToO ZTF19abucwzt, HD93521 ALDa270080 - ALDa270086, ALDa270118 - ALDa270123 Observed
60-502 2020-02-04 00:31 SoftToO ZTF20aajcdad,HD93521 ALDb040096-110 Observations were successfully done for group 20200204_ztf20aajcdad_spec1_3 but were not not for 20200204_ztf20aakypiu_spec1_0 as the seeing was not good enough. Some upper cirrus were present during the observations. No other issues found. Observed
60-502 2020-02-13 01:33 SoftToO ZTF19abucwzt, HD93521 ALDb130056-ALDb130062, ALDb130073 - ALDb130078 Observed with seeing < 1 arcsec. The Prop ID is set wrong in the header of the target ZTF19abucwzt, maybe that\'s why the filenames are missing. Observed
60-502 2020-02-15 01:06 SoftToO ZTF20aaerxne, ZTF20aalxlis, HD93521 ALDb150169 - ALDb150180,ALDb150184 - ALDb150189 Observed in clear dusty skies with seeing above 1.3. Observed
60-502 2020-02-17 00:00 SoftToO ZTF19abtsnyy ALDb170072 - ALDb170077 Problems with guide camera, so most data not useful Failed
60-502 2020-02-18 01:10 SoftToO ZTF19abtsnyy, ZTF20aaelulu, HD93521 ALDb180051 - ALDb180056, ALDb180259 - ALDb180265, ALDb180266 - ALDb180271 Targets ZTF19abtsnyy, ZTF20aaelulu, HD93521 were observed with good seeing and clear sky. ZTF19adcec could not be observed because it was overlapping with higher priority targets. Observed
60-502 2020-02-24 01:25 SoftToO HD93521, ZTF19acxpuql, ZTF20aalrqbu ALDb240008 - ALDb240013,ALDb240140 - ALDb240146,ALDb240147 - ALDb240154 Observed in dusty conditions with thin clouds. Observed
60-502 2020-02-25 01:25 SoftToO ZTF20aalcyih, HD93521, ZTF20aacbyec ALDb250114-21, ALDb250146-58 Observations were carried out without problems but under dusty conditions. Seeing varied a lot from 1.7 to 3.5 arcseconds. Observed
60-502 2020-03-01 01:20 SoftToO ZTF19abtsnyy, HD93521, ZTF20aalxlis,
ALDc010092-97, 167-172, 227-233, 356-361 Observed
60-502 2020-03-05 01:24 SoftToO HD93521, ZTF20aaelulu, ZTF20aajcdad ALDc050147 - ALDc050152, ALDc050153 - ALDc050159, ALDc050153 - ALDc050159 All targets observed with clear sky and good seeing. Observed
60-502 2020-03-09 01:31 SoftToO HD93521, ZTF20aasfhia, ZTF20aalrqbu ALDc090063 - ALDc090068, ALDc090070 - ALDc090077, ALDc090088 - ALDc090095 All targets were observed under very variable seeing conditions (from >3 to 1.3 arcsec). Observed
60-502 2020-03-12 01:26 SoftToO ZTF20aaelulu, HD93521, ZTF19aanijpu ALDc120103 - ALDc120116, ALDc120142 - ALDc120147 Cloudy night with thin clouds becoming thicker as the night went on. Seeing around 1 arcsec during spectra and between 1.-0.8 arcsec during imaging. Dust and low wind during the whole night. Marked as failed since clouds moved in during ZTF19aanijpu imaging. Failed
60-502 2020-03-19 00:00 SoftToO Did not open telescope due to bad weather. Failed
60-502 2020-03-24 00:28 SoftToO ZTF19aanijpu ALDc240220 - ALDc240225 Due to the very tight schedule for tonight, only 20200324_ztf19aanijpu_phot could be atempted. However the other targets will be attempted tomorrow as well, if the weather permits it. The photometric observation was done without problems, under good weather conditions and seeing ~1-1.3 arcsecond. Failed
