  • Waiting for sunset.
01:16
  • Waiting for clouds and humidity.
2:06
  • Humidity is oscillating wildly. Still too high.
2:35
  • Opening
2:59
  • Had a shell rip 20 min ago because the fastlink wasn't working, I think. Restarted the adsec and the wfsarb and now everybody's happy.
  • 20221005_030042
  • ESM Bin 4, 387Hz, g_tt_0.91_ho1_0.76_ho2_0.10.fits
  • seeing's around 1.5" from the WFS. The DIMM is acting dumb.
  • Mag 15.4
  • 20221005_030920
3:25
  • We had a cloud roll through, but now we're back to guiding on the real star instead of moon-illuminated cloud.
3:34
  • New Target
  • Bin 4, 400Hz
  • Shell ripped during optimize, befor3e the gains even got very high.
  • I asked Steve about the DIMM, he muttered something unintelligible.
  • Forgot to cycle the WFS arb process.
  • We've re-sent the preset.
  • It appears that optimize gain over drives the adsec until it fails.
  • I've submitted an IT.
  • Going to manual...
  • It failed once, during re-start.
  • Re-re-started adsec.
  • 20221005_040803
  • 20221005_041301
4:40
  • New preset
  • 20221005_044650
  • Bin4, 200Hz manual gains 0.65 0.55
5:12
  • New Preset
  • Had to do a pointing check
  • Bin4 200Hz 17th mag
  • Same gains as before.
  • 20221005_052329
  • 20221005_053039
5:55
  • Closing for humidity.
10:55
  • Opening back up. More AO (even though I was led to believe that I'd be done when the moon set)
11:02
  • Doing pointing check and then preset.
  • Bin2 400Hz
  • Going to try optimize gain once.
  • DIMM's back, Glory Be!
  • Here we go... Gains TO THE MOON!
  • 9.0 5.00
  • Shows mag 14
  • 20221005_111305
  • 20221005_111358
11:37
  • We had a couple of issues with the loop opening. It looks like some offsets may not have been synchronized with pausing the loop.
  • New preset to the same target.... brave, at 32 degrees elevation.
  • Skipped optimize gain.
  • The curve was so flat, when we optimized last time, that I manually set the gains to 2.0 1.1 0.05
  • 20221005_115117
  • Stopping within 3 seconds of the limit....
12:03
  • New preset
  • Bin4 400Hz 15.3 mag
  • 0.65 0.55 gains
  • 20221005_120349
  • 20221005_120432
  • It safe skips some times because it doesn't calculate the correct pupil size following an offset.
12:30
  • Finished.
