LBT run – Day 4

Here’s a beautiful image of sky, only it usually wouldn’t be beautiful for an astronomer

A beautiful but cloudy sunset at the LBT

AO loop closed. Nice round PSF :).

One would usually look at this view and try and figure out what research to do (i.e which movie on Netflix to watch :P). But I have been amazed with how robust the AO system has been, we’ve been regularly closing the loop in >3 arcsec seeing. And tonight we have closed the loop on a very bright star even in these conditions!!!
