How To Setup ARGOS for AO calibrations
Coordinate telescope access with Telescope Manager and mail to telescopework
Telescope must be at Zenith - you can check it in the IIFGUI.
Stow pins must be in - you can check it in the MCSGUI.
HBS should be on - you can check it in the MCSGUI.
Authorize as LUCI, bentGregorianArgos (
) - you can check in the IIFGUI)
Set the Adsec Shell in Adsec Control GUI
Enable Retroreflector mode from the adsec terminal (enable_rr_mode.sh) - you can check in the AOSGUI (details in
Upper floods must be switched off, lowers can be on
Now done with authorization as bentGregorianArgos:
Fiber switch must connect ARGOS
to Adsec - (
) - (now done with authorization of bentGregorianArgos)
not yet fully:
Control GUI: Tab 'Focal station' -> Press 'Set'
Enable Argos Arbitrator in AOSGUI - (now done with authorization of bentGregorianArgos)
Startup ARGOS and SOUL softwares, see
Open Arbitrator GUI.
In the ARGOS Arbitrator GUI, Tab: Expert->Commissioning.
Execute the operation sequence by clicking on:
"1. Power Up" (wait until status is POWERED_UP). Note that this step waits for the
to be cold, so it takes a long time.
"2. Set Up" (wait until status is SET_UP)
"3. Start Up" (wait until status is STARTED_UP)
SOUL-WFS power up and ready.
Get system to "READY_TO_CALIBRATE_ON_CALSOURCE" (pressing "Prepare"). Make sure that
Calibration source diodes
[Parallel] Deploy calibration unit, see
[Parallel] Setup Hexapod: see
[Parallel] Switch on White light source (shutter position 100)
[Parallel] Switch on Diode sources (100mA current)
After finishing all previous tasks you should see the
on the Patrol cameras (Arbitrator GUI, tab "LGS Acquisition").
If not visible you have to search for them with the Hexapod
If you see large coma you can remove it following
If they look good you put them on the wavefront sensor
Open 'CCD viewer': Applications -> Argos ?x -> ccd viewer
Open Arbitrator GUI, tab "LGS Acquisition".
Select "hexapod & patrol camera"
Click on each of the camera displays on the corresponding spot of the beacons.
Press button "Acquire manually".
Repeat until pattern on "CCD viewer" looks good.
Update in PSFGUI the Hexapod "Global Offsets" with the values from "Platform Position"!
