Observing logPosted by Peter Thejll Apr 29, 2012 08:04AM
12.8 degrees C in dome at start - 45 F outside on MLO mast
9 m/s increasing at start. At xxx.86 the wind is 16 ms or 20 mph. Steady from South.
Exposure factors for the filters are very good this night:
These are factors, note xposure times. The exposure time is some number times the above. A typical IRCUT exposure time may be 0.008 s. The code we have - script_builder_MOON.pro - scales a table like the above one appropriately for the lunar phase.
Later: The above factors seem inadequate on another night with the Moon rising - B is overexposed while VE1, VE2 and IRCUT are at 12000. Hmmm.
A bit later still: Hmmm - the above problem was due to hanging shutter - but a very consistently hanging shutter! So the table is OK. B is perhaps a bit high but now V and VE2 are just right.
