The 9th commissioning run end of March (3 nights) was entirely lost to bad weather. NOTCam was offered in visitor mode on April 1st. No time was lost to technical problems. The 10th commissioning run in June (1 night) gave the first photometric dataset after shutter problem was solved. Visitor runs in June and July went smoothly. NOTCam was left to warm up in August. The 11th commissioning run in September (1/2 night) was spent on photometric standards for zero points and testing of the photometric scatter across the FOV for both cameras in the broad band filters.
