Observing Programs at Keck Observatory with DEIMOS on January 14 2013 for Prochaska + Associates
This page organizes all of the projects for DEIMOS on January 14. Each program page should include: (i) the optimal setup for the observation; (ii) a target list with finder charts and recommended exposure times; (iii) any additional notes of interest (S/N desired, priority of targets); (iv) Worst conditions (seeing, clouds) under which observations will still be useful
Here is the current observing plan:
18 degree Twilight is at 02:37 in the evening, and then begins at 13:01 in the morning.
2h37m: QSOGAL_J0057+1442 (900s sci; 180s acquisition)
02h55m: QSOGAL_J0132-0931 (900s sci; 180s acquisition) [Priority = 1]
3h13m: QSOGAL_J0212-0737 (900s sci; 180s acquisition)
3h31m: QSOGAL_J0256+0113 (900s sci; 180s acquisition)
3h49m: MASK J0317 (Faint HII regions) (2 * 900 s) See: BackupHalpha
4h23m: QSOGAL_J0341-0041 (900s sci; 180s acquisition)
4h41m: J0459-26_HII_1 and others as time allows. 900s exposures, slit alignment takes time. See: BackupHalpha
5h45m: FB0751m6_early (0751m6) (4 * 1800s sci, 660s acquisition)
7h56m: MIRA on PG1148...
8h00m: PG1148m2_earlyjan (m21148) (3 * 1800s sci, 660s acquisition)
9h41m: QSOGAL_J0933+3852 (900 sci; 180s aquisition) [Priority = 1]
9h59m: QSOGAL_J1024+5556 (900 sci; 180s acquisition) [Priority = 1]
10h21m: PG1148m3_midjan (m31148) (4 * 1800s sci, 660s acquisition)
12h32m: QSOGAL_J1211+3657 (900 sci; 180s acquisition) [Priority = 1]
12h50m: QSOGAL_J1448+3559 (900sci; 180s acquisition) [Priority = 1]
13:08m: Twilight -- Standard Star.
Notes on Making Calibrations go faster (via Greg Wirth):
- Use the calib.tcl tool
- The tool will wait 3 minutes for lamps to warm up before every exposure if you do not do the following:
(1) Set the number of Flats to ZERO (i.e. do flats and arcs separately)
(2) Turn off the "wait for FCS updates" option on the GUI
(3) Then use the tool to complete just the flats
- This will save time!!! At least 20 minutes, maybe more.
