Observing Cadence since end of 2011

Col 1: day number of OC Subsequent remarks: filter cadence. Note exposure times per filter have not changed.

1 y,z full moon
2 y
3 y
4 z
5 i
6 z
7 g,r
8 i
9 z
10 g,r
11 i
12 z
13 g,r
14 r,i -- 1.5 MD time (as best possible, drop r if needed but not whole MD)
15 g,z -- 1.5 MD time (as best possible, drop g if needed but not whole MD)
16 i
17 z
18 gr
19 i
20 z
21 gr
22 i
23 z
24 gr
25 z
26 i
27 z
28 y
29 y

Totals: g=7 r=7 i=8 z=10 +1 at full moon y=5: 38 total but doing extra time on so equivalent 2 more MD observations and would require 1 day loss at end of MD cycle New triage rule: if need to cut MD cut from dual filter night one filter, always avoid dropping entire MD observation if possible. choose to drop g as primary, if g is not primary, then drop r.
