Summary

Night time Activities

(Times are in MST)

8:15 pointto BS9166 Collimate

8:45 Test that triggerWFS gets image and calculates zernikes through the GCS. Success! If we use the stand alone routine wfsc_image (IDL call) to get a WFSC image then the GSC will have socket problem and fail to acquire WFSC image.

9:00 Collimate on BS9166 then move to off-axis star to measure focus: Z4 = ~1300, Move stage to 5 mm to correct. Wait!! Elevation is changing quickly. Must re-collimate primary by hand. Chasing elevation focus correction. Move to star in the south (wfsc images 2-39)

9:50 pointto BS9164. Collimate (40-46)

10:09 pointto BS9164 gstar = 14 x= -0.5 y = 493 wfsc 47-51 z4 = 782, 909, 845, 899, 875 z4_ave =862

10:15 back to on-axis collimate wfsc 52-54 z4 = 263, 281, 67

10:18 back to gstar = 14. delta_focus = 862/164=5.3 mm setfocus -p 15.7 wfsc 55-58, z4 = 247, 234, 626

10:22 gstar = 14. delta_focus =10 mm setfocus -p 11 wfsc 59-61, z4 = -140, -282, -229

10:26 gstar = 14. delta_focus =7.5 mm setfocus -p 13.5 wfsc 62-64, z4 = 89, 120, 145

10:15 back to on-axis, no collimation wfsc 65-67 z4 = 337, 343, 273

10:30 Jesper's Data

Tried to insert M92 in iraf/IRTC/Catalogs/LBTDefault.cat but iraf did not see the new entry. Even tried restarting iraf.

[The default version of LBTtools is the one in Dave T's directory. You have to explicitly set the path to the package if you want to use a local version belonging to LBTO. JMH 08-July-2008]
