Night logs and results

6/15/08 UT
Photometric. Completed various calibrations and testing of the LGS system. Tested primary mirror figure sensitivity to spring scales. Seeing 1.1" in V. No laser projection.

6/16/08 UT
Photometric. Calibrated PHARO, AO, and Acq. Cam platescales. Tested BTO. Seeing 8" in V. No laser projection.

6/17/08 - 6/21/08 UT
Canceled LGS science run due to laser power, stability, and wavefront problems.
