Waiting for sunset. Using the new AO supervisor.

TOO WINDY!

03:42
  • The wind is calming down.
  • Starting with ESM.
  • Mag 12.4
  • Optimize gain in bin2 ESM causes the gains to go sky-high and the loop opens right away.
  • Running well at 4.2 0.75 gains.
04:54
  • New ESM target
  • This one will be bin4
  • Once again, the optimize gain made the loop open. I went with 0.5 0.5.
05:34
  • Next Target
  • Supposed to be 14.8, showing 17.6
  • Lost it on an offset.
  • AdSecArbitrator_106907|ERR| 2160|2022-05-10 05:52:21.518363| ALERTHANDLER > Received alert: actuator 164 is not working correctly (from fastdiagn.L)
05:57
  • New target.
  • Script problem
06:04
  • ACE
  • Guide star shows 14.13
06:30
  • We've had an unusual spate of communication problems tonight. The OCAM kept going "Not Live" for no known reason. After restarting the WFS software (Nothing else would recover the OCAM) for the 4th or 5th time, I noticed that there were possibly a dozen defunct "Supervisor" processes on the WFS. I killed them all without mercy and danced on their graves.
07:33
  • The WFS has been running fine ever since.
  • Seeing is getting worse...
07:46
  • Back to the ESM target from 06:00
  • It was too faint. It was barely above the background. I could see it but the WFS centering algorithm couldn't find it.
08:00
  • New ESM target.
  • Bin2 400 hz
  • Optimize gain worked, but it took forever because it ramped the gain up to 15 on ho1.
08:41
  • New ESM target.
  • Bin 1 400 hz
  • 10.80 10.91 !
  • Mag 12.7
  • seeing: bad 1.88.
  • Tue May 10 09:54:24.932 2022 aos.OffsetXY{FLAO}.failed - OffsetXY{FLAO}[293] - [AOException] thWriteVar error(-5001): Timeout error
  • Manually did the offset on the AOS GUI.
  • Had a couple of times when the loop stuck in pause.
  • I was able to recover.
10:10
  • About to head to a new target.
  • WFS is still stable.
  • Re-Rotator out of range. Josh is moving the LUCI rotator.
  • Bin 4 200 Hz 17.1
10:29
  • OCAM went not live again.
  • Finished the observation at about 11:15
