  9. Run ptmodify commands for PCS on lbtmu01 (see RunningPCS)
  10. Terminal to run GCS Commands on lbtmu01 (see RunningGCS)
  11. Manual collection of Guider Images (see RunningGCS)

1 Start the IRAF xgterm on lbtmu05 (see LBTtoolsIRTC)

Click the blue star IRAF icon launcher to start an xgterm, then load IRAF packages "LBTtools" and "IRTC". epar IRTC to enable sending commands.

2 Start the AGW oacserver on agw-control (see AGwStages)

The xtgerm windows for the AGw oacserver on agw-control can either be started at a command line on an lbtmu05 terminal, or via the "startup" command in IRAF (see LBTtoolsIRTC).

3 Start the IRTC VNC window on lbtmu05 (see RunningTheIRTC)

The IRTC VNCviewer can either be started at a command line on an lbtmu05 terminal with the "rdesktop" command, or via the "startup" command in IRAF (see LBTtoolsIRTC).

4 Start the DirtI Server "irs" on lbtmu105 (see RunningDirtI)

The DirtI Server for sending commands - normally "irs" runs on lbtmu105.

5 Display system log for IIF on lbtmu01

  • % ssh LBTO@lbtmu01
  • % cd /var/log
  • % tail -f messsages | grep IIF

6 Start ds9 display of guider image on lbtmu05 (see JohnSpecial)

  • % ssh LBTO@lbtmu05
  • % cd /Repository/GCSfiles/dailyimages
  • % Guider

A ds9 window will appear and display the last guide or acquisition image used. Images can be viewed with ds9 by clicking the "File"=>"Open"

7 Display system log for GCS on lbtmu107

  • % ssh LBTO@lbtmu107
  • % cd /var/log
  • % tail -f messsages | grep GCS

8 Start PSF Gui on lbtmu01 (see RunningPSF)

  • % ssh telescope@lbtmu01
  • % PSFGUI LEFT &

9 Run ptmodify commands on lbtmu01 (see RunningPCS)

  • % ssh telescope@lbtmu01
  • % ptlist
  • % ptmodify IE -70
  • % ptmodify CA -100

These commands change the El and Az pointing offsets to position the star on the center of Guider Camera

10 Terminal to run CGS Commands (see RunningGCS)

  • % ssh LBTO@lbtmu01
  • % ./setGuideRate 0.4
  • % ./setExpTime 200 (miliseconds)
  • % ./stopGuiding

11 Manual collection of Guider Images (see RunningGCS)

  • % ssh LBTO@lbtmu05
  • % cd /tmp (or wherever)
  • % readGuideCam -e 200 100 (exposure in miliseconds, number of exposures)
  • % (cntrl-C to terminate loop)
