Plan AZ MiniQ - OSCO and ESM

23:42 started up WFS.

Noted triangular pattern on OCAM. Not removed with rebinning or cyling of BCU and OCAM. w_stop_all/start_all. This occured twice before resolved.

0:35 WFS finally clean and not showing any noise so cooling.

1:40 Skyflats took priority over OSCO tonight

2:11 sending preset to first target, HOPS 194. AOref catalog magnitude 13.23. Seeing 1.43" on the DIMM to start.

2:36 WFS mag 14.6, Seeing 2.74" and variable, but awful. We are closed with minimal gains. Bin2, freq400, modes 12, TN 20220310_023611

2:59 We have 5" seeing....I think we may have found the limit of ESM...

3:57 Preset to second ESM target, HOPS 163, AOref catalog magnitude 12.8
  • First center star claimed success but did not center the star.
  • Seeing 2" on the DIMM
  • At seeing 1.5" optimized, noted that optimize gain for bin2 freq 400 ramped ho2 up to 1? Ho1 ramped very high with a flat curve and settled at 10. TN 040724
  • Lowered ho1 to ~5 to where the curve flattens (appears a better minimum). TN040933
5:06 Done with LUCI for today. powering off the WFS. Safed.
