GLITCH 00:35 UT, CHIRON system "repeated" file 1119 like 3 times BUT never wrote the file. Restarted CHIRON. Something similar happened at cal time in January 3th, but this time no system errors. I decided to skip 1119.

 

Comments: 

File 1138 (created at 01:02 UT) on YZ CMi, EXPMETE exponentially peaked to a flat almost 61K counts. However, file looks OK.

Restarted the PC GUIDER GUI 3 times. Unstable. Dome SW pump is noisy.

Ended with Sun at -8 degrees Altitude.
