Operating the AGw Guider and WFSC Image Acquisition

Douglas Miller 10 April 2008

The acquisition of Guider and WFSC images can be accomplished via several command line requests. For these requests to work, the AGw servers "check4nport" and "oacserver" must be running (see AGwStages Manual on the TWiki).

Currently the only computer on the mountain that can acquire images from the AGw is lbtmu107. Thus you must login to the LBTO account.

$ ssh LBTO@lbtmu107

The plan is to put all data from the Guider and WFSC in the Repository

$ cd /Repository/EF_Data
$ mkdir (today's date)  eg 080410
$ cd 080410
$ mkdir wfsc
$ mkdir guider
$ cd wfsc
$ cp ../../Server-PEPSI.ini .
$ cd ../guider
$ cp ../../Server-PEPSI.ini .

To acquire a guider image

The images are named sequencially guider00001.fits, 00002, 00003, etc

The images are named sequencially guider00001.fits, 00002, 00003, etc. Thus, why I suggest a separate directory for Guider and WFSC images

This images (ie the /Respository directorys) are visible on all linux computers on the mountain.
