Observing Log, Apr 11, 2016 0

Posted on April 12, 2016 by Matt

Temperature was 33F, focus 2811, and FWHM roughly 3.5.

After the astronomy field trip was done we decided to take some images of M101 for turning into pretty pictures since the seeing was so good.

UNFORTUNATELY, the “Auto Dark” setting in MaxIm DL was turned on, so the images are useless for science. On the upside, no need to stay later to take flats….

Laura Herzog and Matt Craig did the observing tonight.
