Summary

Night time Activities

(Times are in MST)

8:50 tried a new version of GCS for WFS, found some issues, trying a new version soon...

9:27 going to star BS9166 rolling in 45" tip as per yesterday

10:27 having established tips etc now taking data, on axis collimating first WFSC131-3 now going to guide star 8, take data

10:31 did not receive full CCD readout, resend

10:33 take data on #8 wfsc 135-40, and it turns out that we are out of time, star approaching meridain, rotator spinning, will start again on the way down in about 1 hour.

10:57 some issues with guide star #1 on M5_7638, maybe because it is too faint, investigating

12:30 going to on-axis BS9166 collimating wfsc 17-19. going to #8 and measuring

12:40 measuring on #8 wfsc 21- abortion

1:03 back to on axis collimation, then measuring set of 3 on #8 wfsc 28-30

1:04 collimating on #8 wfsc31-34

Doing tilt -50" (set AGW (XY) = (-22, 448). reqacquired guiding takingf data WFSC 37-40 (centering routine removed subaps on 38 by one subap)

1:25 Doing tilt +50" (set AGW (XY) = (22, 492). reqacquired guiding takingf data WFSC 43-46

1:30 tip -50" AGW (XY) 22, 449) with +2 CA to reacquire guiding) (wfsc 50-53)

1:45 tip +50 AGW (XY) (-22, 495) with -3 IE El 54 degrees wfsc 58-61

1:50 collimating on #8. retaking tip -50" data wfsc 64-67

2:00 going back on axis. collimating. wfsc 68-71

2:08 going to #8 remaesure baseline aberration wfsc 72-76

2:25 going to vignetting observations, going to a point ~15degrees away from the moon. Doing two sets measurements, didnt work out, illumination too uneven

3:55 crunched some data, taking some field measurments now: BS9183 collimating on-axis wfsc 94-98 going to #29 @ 70 deg

4:05 taking data on #29 96-98, going to #54 wfsc

4:20 given up on that with dawn, taking exposure of dawn glow with stage set to 450 in Y. looking for vignetting edge. wfsc103

4:26 gone to 490 stage wfs104, gone to 540 stage, wfsc 105

4:28 gone to 470 wfsc107
