LUCIFER Technical Observing, prep for Partner Science:
UT 2010 Mar 08
Telescope Operator: W.Wack
Instrument Support: D.Officer
SW support: T.Edgin (on call)
Lost entire night to fog, wind, snow.
Time given to M2 team to diagnose their fiber problem
LBCR rear cover re-installed.
LBCB filter wheels checked, seem to be well aligned (just vignetting?).
LUCIFER Telescope Service restarted, communicates with AO2
Manual presets and offsets sent from LUCIFER UI, executed as expected
GCS triggered once, it did what it should have.
Still to do as of 10:30 MST:
Enter new mask data into LUCIFER engineering interface
Closed dome SW tests, if requested
Expand pointto to include RDG, LDG, RFBG, MODS1
Correct initial collimation/pointing:
Use Brackett Gamma filter, can do in twilight
Correct IE/CA at high elevation
Correct IA at low elevation (AZ encoder problems)
Check/correct IE/CA again at high elevation
Open dome SW tests, if requested
Run dice5 pattern to check that things still work
Check repeated positioning on LUCIFER with and without flex comp on
Re-test updatePointingReference functionality.
Repeat measurement of focal plane scale, orientation
Check existing collimation model
Take new data if necessary
Check existing pointing model
Implement new collimation model if necessary
Take 12 points, with pointing log on...
Take full set (56 points) if the first 12 points are off.
Collect a "movie" of 2s LUCIFER images while an in-field offset is taking place.
Check to make sure offsets still happen in a reasonable manner
Collect through-focus sequence for Andrew - reasonably dense star field.
also check the AGw-LUCIFER focus in cold weather for temp term?
Collect astrometric field data to check AGw calibration at colder temps
Improve map of AGw patrol field limits at high field angle
Requires set up work on a stone field
See this plot for extra patrol field area (in blue):
Continue gaining experience with LUCIFER on-sky (e.g. spec acq.)
March 6-7, End of night - Test of improved MOS acquisition sequence
