06:47 Collimate with IDL:sextractor wfsc 383-386. I had found the gains for sextractor for LBBG were the same as COW. However, Sextractor should be +-1.0. Had changed these to the correct values and this is the first collimation that these were used. Previous collimates the last three night had gain factors too big.
