SX AO/LUCI1 Commissioning

02:20 First AO Preset
  • Al's Asteroid
  • Sideral tracking on a non-sideral object
  • AO system is "guiding"
  • Bright so Bin 1
  • First StartAO failed because the auto gain for All went to high (~2.0) and the mirror safe-skipped
  • Modified ~/TEST/conf/wfs/current/processConf/autogain.conf
    • changed bin1_tt_max from 3.0 to 2.0.
    • we had change this value from 2.0 to 3.0 yesterday night to try to get the TT gain found by auto gain to be higher. Was finding 0.3 not 1.0 as we expected
  • After third dither pauseAO, the resumeAO failed
    • dither offsets were in absolute coords which means the offsets were from the original position rather than the new "guided" position
    • LUCI scripts with relative offsets should solve this problem.

03:30 CL bin 3
  • Gopt is not detecting the disturbance. No NCPA
  • 033131
  • Looks like good correction. Could maybe have higher gain
  • Bin 3 Modal Plot:
    bin3_033131.jpg

04:30 Loop open because of safe skip
  • Greg close the loop manually

04:31 Loop open, skip frame

04:43 Preset CL
  • After auto gain, lower all gains a bit
  • still seeing a bit to TT flashing lower all gains a bit
  • 044816

04:50 CL with StartAO
  • 045149

04:58 Clouds coming over the last 40 minutes
  • Changing flux on pyramid of ~3 mag
  • 045448

05:10 Switch to AO performance tests because of the variable sky opacity
  • Preset to AO306 (6.9 mag)
  • Clouds clear, too bright on LUCI

05:26 Preset to AO309
  • 8 mag
  • RunAO failed: timeout on baysidey

05:36 Preset to AO309
  • 9.0 mag on pyramid
  • rotator 306
  • NCPA ON
    • 054603
    • 054635
    • 054709
    • bad background

05:45 Take new BG
