SX LUCI/AO Commissioning

02:15 Bayside stage timeout twice

02:45 Start loop manually, but no commands are being sent to the AdSec (mirror GUI shows not commands).
  • Set loop params, loaded REC, close loop and wfsframes arrive at AdSec on mirror control GUI, but commands are all 0.0
  • Cycle power and process on AdSec and WFS
  • Now X Bayside stage would not home.
  • Finally after many power and process restarts and moving the stage by hand and rotating the instrument rotator by 180 degrees (less current) the stage finally homed

04:00 Send preset and acquireRef and get baysidex timeout

04:20 Finally a Preset, RunAO from LUCI was successful

11:05 Loop Open in bin 1 CL
  • Get generic arbitrator error
  • Master Diagnostics process on wfssx machine was down
  • Restart process and manually close the loop

11:59 The loop has opened several times with safe skip
  • On the AdSec Mirror we could see the very top edge of the shell roll over 5 seconds or so and then safe skip
  • Seeing was consistently 1.2"
  • We built a 110 mode, bin 2 reconstructor
  • We did not see this rolling behavior with this new reconstructor
  • I need to build bad seeing reconstructors and update the table_LUCIFER_ACE-AO.badseeing.txt file
  • High winds are forecast for tomorrow frown, sad smile

12:14 Skip frame and loop opened on an offset
  • From watching the engineering GUI's, it looked like the AO system received the PauseAO command (the State on the AdSec Control GUI said PauseAO)
  • On the AdSec Mirror GUI there were still commands being applied to the AdSec
  • We saw the command show a BIG tilt as the telescope offset and the bayside stages moved
  • The tilt became large and the AdSec safe skipped and the loop "Opened".
  • We think the AdSec Status then went to AOSet
  • The AO Supervisor then received a ResumeAO, which failed
  • Seeing was about 1" on the DIMM
  • Here is the log output from the AOS

12:42 The loop Opened after an Offset
  • The Seeing was ~1.2"
  • Bin 2
  • It's getting towards dawn and there is a lot of background light on CCD47. CCD39 does not look too bad
  • Here's the AOS log

12:48 Close loop manually
  • The Gopt ratio is ~0.08. Most of the night this ratio for Bin 2 has been 0.15 to 0.25.
  • Does extra background light have an affect on the Gopt measurement?
