MDRS ROBOTIC OBSERVATORY

Robotic Telescope Requested MDRS-14

Objects to be Imaged this Evening:

V CAS (Resubmitted today)
Search pattern (submitted last night): Still active since last night. 1 image is missing out of the three images requested for each search pattern.
V0960 Mon (resubmitted today).

Images submitted with this report: Non

Problems Encountered: No photometry measurement was performed today due to the bad seeing profile (please see an example of the seeing profile for V CAS in the attached file). This seeing profile also occurs with V0960 MON as well as with random stars. The reason of this might be bad focusing and high background noise levels. New requests were submitted, and problem reported to observatory director.
