69-030 2024-04-05 00:00 Mon HD97160 - The target was missed due to clouds covering its area. It was tried once nevertheless, but a guide star wasn't found. Failed
69-030 2024-04-13 00:26 Mon HD97160 FIHd130110 - FIHd130112 HD39390 was missed as the telescope had to be kept closed due to a combination of dusty air and strong wind. When the winded calmed down a bit, it was too late to observe HD39390 following the air mass restriction. HD97160 on the other hand was observed successfully, but the lower hatch was closed due to the moderate wind. Observed
69-030 2024-04-21 00:28 Mon HD39390 FIHd210063 - FIHd210066 Observed with thin clouds. At the end of the exposure clouds got denser and the guide star was lost, but the exposure was already reading out. Observed
69-030 2024-05-04 00:26 Mon HD114839 FIHe040106 - FIHe040108 Observed in thin clouds with seeing around 0.8" Observed
69-030 2024-05-14 00:26 Mon HD114839 FIHe140096 - FIHe140098 Target observed through thin clouds with 1" seeing. Observed
69-030 2024-06-16 02:18 Mon KIC7900367 FIHf160078 - FIHf160082 Target observed with clear skies and subarcsec seeing Observed
