Just a quick reminder for MagAO users who may be considering submitting a telescope proposal in the near future: MagAO will not be available for general use in the 2016B semester. The system will be on the telescope during the semester, but for engineering work only. This work includes recalibration, and installation of the MagAO-2K upgrades: more modes controlled, faster speed (up to 2000 Hz), and installation and commissioning of a new detector for Clio.
We all made it home safely. Carefully packing my purse the first time I left the house, I remembered my keys and phone… but forgot my wallet — oh yeah, you need money to acquire goods in the non-mountain economy! At least I remembered I DIDN’T need my flashlight.
This 3-song mashup is so beautiful that my head fills in the other 2 songs when I hear 1 of the songs on the radio:
Our last day at LCO (this time) was a critter filled day.
The Guanaco herd, complete with youngun, made an appearance. The pictures didn’t turn out though.
Today we packed up a lot of stuff.
Some things were more carefully packed than others.
So long LCO. See you next time.
Made of Silver. Once.
