AO Reconstructor and NCPA On-sky Testing

Plan

Test Reconstructor (SX/DX) and NCPA correction (SX)
  • Bin 1
    • Send preset and runao to IIF
    • Start OptGain loop and NCPA Tracking
    • Place star on sweet spot on LUCI by moving bayside stages
    • Run AutoFocusLuci.py
      • Insert focus value in board set LUCIFER??
    • Collect Optical Loop Data, including LUCI images, at instrument rotator position with NCPA on and off
      • 0 => Low NCPA amplitudes (FeII and BGamma (best strehl possible))
      • 150 => High NCPA amplitudes (BGamma)
      • 165 => Off the measured NCPA amplitude measured point (BGamma)
  • Bin 2, 3, 4
    • Collect Optical Loop Data at instrument rotator position with NCPA on and off
      • 150 => High NCPA amplitudes (BGamma)

Test LUCI Script (ACE Preset)

Collect ESM Data with LUCI Script (TTM preset, no NCPA)

Details

08:18 Binoc ACE preset to A45_R8_0038 BOTH
  • Failed, wrong star with wrong GS

08:23 Binoc ACE preset to A45_R8_0038 BOTH
  • Success on SX
  • Failed on DX, no GS found

08:26 RunAO

08:31 Binoc ACE preset to A45_R8_0038 LEFT
  • Success

08:40 RunAO RIGHT
  • Failed, could not center camera lens
  • Realtime pupils not calculated

RIGHT ONLY

08:48 Take Opt Loop Data
  • No NCPA
  • Rot at 127.4
  • 084755
  • com to LUCI freeze

08:50 Turn on NCPA Tracking and GUI freeze
  • Alfio says we can not turn on NCPA tracking if loop closed from IIF or AOS
  • Alfio working on it

09:00 Close loop manually LEFT
  • No NCPA
  • Still having troubles coping images from LUCI back the AO Supervisor system

09:20 Dave Stop and Restart LUCI software

09:28 Save Optical Loop Data
  • 092749

09:53 Close loop manually

10:07 Close loop from AOS
  • Click on NCPA tracking ON
  • Now NCPA is being applied for current angle and updating as rotator moves
  • Alfio, Guido and Simone install a better Opt Gain Analysis

10:25 Alexander fix reading of LUCI images. A fix in LUCI SW v8.* was not propagated to v9.*. It is now

10:55 Closed loop

10:58 Open Loop due to jump in act 149. It jumped at 09:41 also.
  • Shell RIpped

11:03 Preset * failed, PresetAO failed...twice

11:13 Closed loop, NCPA off
  • 111329 (20 frames)
  • 111421 (200 frames)

11:15 Closed loop, NCPA on
  • 111552
  • 111611
  • 111627
  • Loop Open. Not clear why

11:19 Closed loop again, NCPA Off *111211 (200 frames)

11:31 Clode loop manually, NCPA on
  • 113414 (20)
  • 113550 (200) modes

11:09 With NCPA
  • 113703
