Closed for high winds and heavy cloud cover. Plan for second half is to test TTM table w/WFS
  • UT1:45 WFS powered up but not cooled
Flat set with 640 modes. Telescope up on oil with pins in.

Yesterday, the camera lens was railing for bin2. trying other rotator postiions
  • bin2 - 13.0 mag, argos source shutter at 63, PA341 X camera lens railed on CL
  • bin2 - 12.8 mag, argos source shutter at 59, PA251 X camera lens railed on close loop
  • bin2 - 13.0 mag, argos source shutter at 59, PA161, lots of range for both X and Y
Verifying rotator angle of PA161works for bin4 and bin1
  • bin4 mag 16.8, argos source at 44, lots of range, same with bin 1 10th mag, argos source fully open
Verifying the LUCI image configuration -
  • Hband for bin1 with argos source fully open was ~14K at peak in 2.5sec not optimized.
  • H band Bin4 with estimated mag 17.1 (argos shutter 44)540 counts in the peak
