ARGOS Engineering at LBTO, September 2 to 5, 2012

Players: Jamison N., Matt R., Gustavo R.

Sunday, September 02

  • Arrived at LBTO.
  • Jamison and Matt had arrived the day before with the SX LM1.
  • Matt and I worked on the telescope getting the LM1 platform ready for the mirror cell, which was being assembled by Jamison in the High Bay.
  • Initial attempt to test motors failed due to network communication problems. Sent a request for help to Martin K. (MPIA).

Monday, September 03

  • Motors were tested OK after applying Martin's fix and restarting the network service (must verify that eth0 has the right IP address assigned, if not, use "ifconfig eth0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx").

Martin's fix: route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eth0

  • The LM1 assembly was lifted to chamber through the high bay hatch after lunch.
  • We spent the rest of the afternoon working on mounting the assembly with the help of Michael M. As expected, it was necessary to modify a couple of landing pads for a proper fit.
