  • Primary observation target identified : rho Cyg- 73 Cyg - HIG 106481, right ascension = 21h 33m 58.85298s, declination = 45 35′ 29.1 "
  • Checked the camera cooler temperatures: -5.2 for ST8 and -15.0 for ST8300
 
  • Took exposures with exposure time 0.1s for ST8300 and 0.5s for ST8
  • For ST8300, file names begin with odd alphabets (a,c and so on) whereas for ST8 file names begin with even alphabets
  • The data is compiled as below:

  • However, due to technical problems we were unable to take images with colour filters
  • We continued taking unfiltered images every 10 minutes( as the star moved from the azimuth to the horizon), saving them as files beginning with L
  • Exposure time is 0.5s for every image
