Professor Arlo U. Landolt from Louisiana State University regulates the temperature of the 2.1-m telescope at Kitt Peak. Landolt prepared the telescope for use despite the rainy conditions in hopes of being able to do more research on his final night with the telescope. He was allotted 6 1/2 nights with the telescope.

Landolt's research focuses on stellar photometry. Read about his research here.
