Bin setup Frequency vs magnitude.

The setup of the AO systems are determine by the magnitude. The AO table collects the different setup.

file located: /home/AOeng/live/aoroot/calib/wfs/current/ao
Bin mag
1 0-12.7
2 >12.7-14.5
3 >14.5-16.5
4 >16.5-20.5

INSTRUMENT GUIS.

AOS.

SOUL WFS.

WFS CONTROL GUI.

The GUI has all the functionalities to close the loop with different setup, visualize the Pupils

Visualization of the AO reference star using the acquisiton camera A.K.A CCD47

ccd47.png

Visualization of the Pupils, slopes rms and intensity of the subapertures (pixel value).
  • Pupils view.
  • red circles where the pupils are defined where have to be.
  • Statistics of the pupils positions and sizes (pixels).
  • seeing value.
  • Diffrence position respect of the pupil mask defined per each bin (diff x/y).
  • Pupil file loaded.

Auxiliar loop Guis where the user can display some AO parameters.
  • Strehl ratio computed from slopes.
  • Modal plot (variance of the modes applied)
  • TipTilt jitter (rms arcsec)
  • Gopt values.
  • MAgnitude

FLAO GUI.

Gui built to execute the close loop steps in an automatic mode or manual iterations for each step. GUI also displays the plots for the optimize gain process.

LOOP Exceptions:

AO preset

  • Star position outside limits: position -52.3,15.1 Limits.
  • Star magnitude is required.
  • No setup for instrument WFS, mode.
  • ARGOS configuration can only be used with binning 4.
  • Star too bright (estimated mag: ). Minimum magnitude is (Red from table.mag, maxMag)
  • Error in AO table: expected 20 or 23 parameters, found x len(params2)).
  • BCU47 temperature too low., minimum allowed is affects camera lens"

Check Reference.

  • Magnitude calculation cannot take place with negative counts'

Center star.

  • No stars found in TV frame.
