Work with the retroreflector and other tests not requiring offsets with the AOS

Details

00:32 Starting tests with the dome closed

02:55 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • we try with the antidrift
  • failed - the AO ccd is complaining
  • err = Resmsg[2] = thGetVar ccd39.R.FRMRT.CUR error(-3606): No connection with MsgD
  • err = Resmsg[3] = PresetAO[237] failed - thGetVar ccd39.R.FRMRT.CUR error(-3606): No connection with MsgD

03:02 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:05 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • changing a bit the coordinates

03:06 irc_runao - rip with the antidrift
  • err = Resmsg[0] = RunAO result status: Error
  • err = Resmsg[1] = err = Resmsg[2] = AcquireRef[242] failed

03:10 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:13 irc_runao
  • same error as yesterday... (?)

03:16 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:28 irc_runao
  • ripped - stressed by the antidrift (?)

03:21 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:21 irc_runao - failed

03:25 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • the preset exited without an error BUT the shell is still not set!! - this should change!
  • the telescope should look at the state of the shell BEFORE sending the preset

03:26 irc_runao - success * the antidrift was off

03:29 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • ripped in the open loop
  • err = Resmsg[2] = adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Set focal station)
  • err = Resmsg[3] = PresetAO[257] failed - adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Set focal station)

03:32 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:33 irc_runao
  • shell ripped - even thought it managed to close the loop with the 10 modes...
  • DSP stop - DSP start... who is doing that?
===> Error in irc_runao
        err = Resmsg[0]  = RunAO result status: Error
        err = Resmsg[1]  = AcquireRef[260] complete -  dx:-1.025 dy:-1.737 slNull: f1:Filter #1 f2:Filter #1 freq:990 mag:7.344 nBins:1 nModes:400 r0:0 snMode:0 strehl:0 ttMod:3
        err = Resmsg[2]  = adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Run Ao)
        err = Resmsg[3]  = StartAO[261] failed - adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Run Ao)

03:37 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:38 irc_runao -success!

03:43 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:44 irc_runao - success

03:46 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:47 irc_runao - success
  • they open the loop - to restarted the slope computer for debugging

03:50 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:51 irc_runao - rip
  • err = Resmsg[0] = RunAO result status: Error
  • err = Resmsg[1] = err = Resmsg[2] = AcquireRef[276] failed
  • set mirror flat

03:54 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

03:55 irc_runao - rip
 
===> Error in irc_runao
        err = Resmsg[0]  = RunAO result status: Error
        err = Resmsg[1]  = AcquireRef[279] complete -  dx:-1.393 dy:-1.664 slNull: f1:Filter #1 f2:Filter #1 freq:990 mag:7.435 nBins:1 nModes:400 r0:0 snMode:0 strehl:0 ttMod:3
        err = Resmsg[2]  = adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Run Ao)
        err = Resmsg[3]  = StartAO[280] failed - adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Run Ao)

04:00 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

04:04 irc_runao - success

04:04 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • err = Resmsg[0] = PresetTelescope result status: Error
  • err = Resmsg[1] = Stop[285] failed - Command timeout - -13107: Arbitrator interface generic error

04:08 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • preset failed because the primary was not ready
  • err = Resmsg[2] = right PMC Mirror GoToPositionAbs Command Failed because Wrong mirror state

04:15 the wind is starting to be lower than the limit...

04:21 - the M1 mirror went down because the AO system was offloading excessive forces and sent M1 in panic mode
  • this is a safety feature
  • disabled ''send guide corrections to PCS'' and ''send wf correction to PSF''
  • this should keep M1 from panicking

04:24 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

04:26 irc_runao - failed
  • set flatAO failed - there is a stop - start

04:33 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

04:34 irc_runao - success

04:35 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

04:37 irc_runao - success

04:39 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • failed during the open loop

04:54 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

04:55 irc_runao - rip

05:00 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0

05:02 irc_runao - success

05:07 iif_preset, test, MODE=ACE, GS=1, RS=0, PA=0
  • err = Resmsg[2] = adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Set focal station)
  • err = Resmsg[3] = PresetAO[310] failed - adsecarb:Illegal command for state Ready (Set focal station)

05:15 winds are going down -* planning to open dome *
  • first we need to take the retroreflector off

05:58 pointing correction

06:06 iif_preset, AO522, MODE=ACE, GS=5, RS=0, PA=0
  • we repeat the preset because the shell was not ready

06:08 iif_preset, AO522, MODE=ACE, GS=5, RS=0, PA=0

06:11 irc_runao
  • shell ripped - at the beginning with the 10 modes

06:14 need to close the dome because of winds

08:29 openinng dome - correcting pointing

08:39 iif_preset,AO748, MODE=ACE,GS=3, RS=0, PA=0
  • and in the meantime we set the shell

08:42 irc_runao
===> Error in irc_runao
        err = Resmsg[0]  = RunAO result status: Error
        err = Resmsg[1]  = RETRY: source_acq error: Star centering procedure failed to converge after 5 iterations (-20003) WFSARB_STAR_NOTCONVERGED
        err = Resmsg[2]  = AcquireRef[325] failed - RETRY: source_acq error: Star centering procedure failed to converge after 5 iterations (-20003) WFSARB_STAR_NOTCONVERGED

08:46 irc_runao - success

08:55 DIMM - 1.09''

09:01 - rip - although irc_runao was successful
  • there is no offloading

09:06 irc_runao - success

09:24 we are in open loop - skiped frames
  • this should be normel because the seeing is ~1.4''

09:25 irc_runao - success * took some images for strehl measurements

09:36 closing dome again for winds
