Astronomy Report – February 3rd

Astronomy Report

Name: Ghanim Alotaibi

Crew: 221
Date: 3 Feb 2020

One week before the rotation, two targets were submitted. V CAS using the MDRS 14, and the Orion Nebula using the MDRS WF. In Sol 1, a picture was taken for V CAS, while the Orion Nebula request was still active. A permission is needed from the observatory director to perform photometry analysis in a picture taken before the field rotation.

In Sol 1, the crew astronomer took a pic for the astronomy laptop, the mouse and the powercord. The picture was sent by email to the Observatory Director.

MDRS ROBOTIC OBSERVATORY

Robotic Telescope Requested MDRS-14

Objects to be Imaged this Evening: V CAS and SS CYG

Images submitted with this report: Non

Problems Encountered: When the request to SS CYG was submitted in Skynet, a message appears saying that the target is not within one hour visibility within the telescope site. I was therefore unable to submit the request.
