  • It repoints, but the stages do a fine-scale adjustment, but that isn't what we want. We want the stages to not move.

  • 100 LUCI frames
  • GOPT off: 044414, 044456, 044526, 044553
  • GOPT on: 044828, 044855, 044927, 044956

  • Preset to bin2 star
  • 400 Hz. Let's see if GOPT will run at that speed.
  • Mag 11.9
  • Optimize Gain failed due to seeing.
05:52
  • Re-try the preset
  • Seems to be working
06:17
  • Preset with the star hitting the hotspot.
06:25
  • Changed fov.txt from x=-73.3 to x=-74.14, y=-47.8 to y=-49.51 to align bayside stages with off axis guide probe.
  • Successful preset
07:21
  • The FLAO gui gives a warning about actuator 514, but it seems to have been a temporary jump, #514 is OK right now...
07:43
  • CCD 39 became disconnected for a different reason than usual. I've attempted to reset it by changing the binning
  • Applied the "reset" signal to the BCU 39
  • Restarted software on WFS. Multiple failueres might have put things into a weird state.
08:21
  • Seeing having horrendous fluctuations. Upwards of 4"...
  • Stopping for now.
