20180521 AO/ESM/SL on both sides, Arcetri Optimize Gain Tests

02:37 Chamber open, Geno waiting for the sky to dim to be able to see a Pointing Star

02:50 Pointing and Collimation done

02:55 Geno send ACE Preset

02:58 PresetAO Arrive

02:59 PresetAO Done (before full TelescopePreset was done)

03:01 RunAO

03:06 Loops Closed and Gain Optimized (manually on DX)
  • Gains
    • L 1.0, 0.6, 0.42
    • R 0.65, 0.4, 0.3 (Manual gain, Opt Gain Failed, L Gains were too high)
  • Mags
    • Catalog 8.31 mag
    • L 9.4 measured
    • R 9.2 measured

03:09 Collect 3 TN with LUCI images with ~/auxloops/scripts/luci_take_three.py
    • LUCI16,7,8 TN 20180522_?, 031010, 031052 (Error on First TN/LUCI)
    • LUCI2 6,7,8 TN 20180522_?, ?, ? (LUCI images were collected but WFS had a problem so no TN displayed. Can manually copy images to luci.fits)

03:13 Preset to Science

04:45 ESM Preset WAS49 Minor Merger of a Spiral Galaxy and Powerful AGN)
  • 14.21 catalog
  • 15.1/15.0 measured
  • ~1.0" on DIMM, LUCI1/2 0.4" FWHM
  • El = 75
  • Starting LUCI2 51 (LUCI1 49) changed LUCI2 focus from 55.2 to 55.5 mm (55.5 mm measured by Greg on 20180517 daytime)

05:02 RunAO done, take Science data
  • LUCI1 44-68
  • LUCI2 46-70

05:30 Changed setup files for LUCIFER_ACE_AO, ACE_AO.badseeing, TTM_AO to 55.5 mm focus

05:50 Done with ESM. Off to Standard

06:00 EMS Preset to NGC3921 Galaxy Merger
06:07 Closed Loop
  • Manually set gains to 2.0, 1.0, 1.0
  • Catalog 13.69
  • 14.5/14.4 measured
  • DIMM ~1.12
  • EL = 54
  • LUCI1 80 increase gain to 3.0, 2.0, 2.0
