All times are MST

12:00 Soft group finish and Konstantina and I take over

12:10 preset BS9142 Active gs=0 Collimate

12:20 test new routine collimate_collect, bs9142, logname, retval, gs=9, /GCS. IRTC was in continuous mode. stop that and resend collimate_collect

12:40 collimate_collect, bs9145, logname, retval, gs=??, /GCS -> col_60a

12:55 collimate_collect, bs9126, logname, retval, gs=??, /GCS -> col_30a
  • we had a communication glitch - only 9 sets saved - we consider it done
  • seeing 1.3''-1.5''

01:10 ask TO to change the pointing model

01:20 collimate_collect, bs9155, logname, retval, gs=7, /GCS -> col_45a * seeing ~1.2''

01:40 collimate_collect, bs9148, logname, retval, gs=1, /GCS, PA=180 -> col_75b
  • preset failed because GS was on the edge of the field
  • ask TO to correct pointing
  • repeat collimate_collect - seeing ~0.9''

02:00 collimate_collect, bs9177, logname, retval, gs=11, /GCS -> col_30b
  • aborted because gs too faint (13.6)
  • change gs=16 (12.6) - seeing >2.2'' - but it gets better as elevation increases

02:10 Modified /lbt/oacontrol/etc/oacontrol.conf and copied this new configuration to oacontrol.conf.20110316. The new transformation numbers are:

Transformation:
ax1 + by1 + kx = x2
  -1.00253428404995       1.716537354280230E-002  0.299803153168764     
ax1 + by1 + ky = y2
 -1.716537354280230E-002  -1.00253428404995        612.709892527265     
RMS(X)=  0.02260  RMS(Y)=  0.02310

where we used 26 data points. The data are in /OldRepository/AGW_Data/20110315/transform_1/Stone_K

02:22 Restart AGW and OA control
  • iif_preset, BS9158, GS=4, MODE=ACTIVE
  • we go to a higher elevation and let it collimate - verify that transformation is reasonable

02:52 dice5_collect, dist=1, iter=5 we are on star BS9158.

02:55 (09:55UT) OffsetPointing failed with Invalid Buffer. Retryed offset and was successful. Submitted IssueTrak # 3244

03:04 dice5_collect, dist=1, iter=5 -> dice5_1_75a
  • the star seems to have a little offset... not exactly centered on the IRTC

03:26 Check the tranformation coefficients in oacontrol.conf and found I had missed a (-) sign on sfpagw21. Fixed this and Steve restarted AGW2 and oacserver. Ooops.

03:36 sending the preset again after restarting AGW and OAC (BS9158)
  • for some reason we have no wfs image and we run acquisition manually - it worked before
  • this time it did not work - stop/start GCS - manual acqusition again - first time failed - second time worked - issue track 3245
  • repeat preset - preset cancelled because Telescope off source too long - issue track already exists 3124
  • repeat preset

03:51 dice5_collect, dist=1, iter=5 -> dice5_1_75b
  • seeing 1.0''-1.3''
