Details

02:00 sending first preset for pointing correction
  • iif_preset, M5_0358, GS=0, MODE=ACQUIRE, ROTMODE=PARALLACTIC
  • coordinates of this star seem to be BAD, because we were not pointing correctly!!

02:10 collimate_collect, BS9142, GS=9, retval, /GCS
  • preset failed, so we are sending an on-axis preset
  • iif_preset, BS9142, GS=0, MODE=ACQUIRE, ROTMODE=PARALLACTIC
  • does not find anything
  • we preset to another M5 star - M5_0425 - need to correct pointing again

02:20 repeat collimate_collect, BS9142
  • we have elevation 55 ... it is saved as col_45b
  • seeing ~1.0'

02:35 dice5_collect, logname, retval, DIST=1.0, InformationTechnologyER=5 -> dice5_1_60b
  • seeing ~0.8''

  • The Stone field is facing the wind ... take into consideration when looking at the guide probe corrections
  • actually the guide star is oscilating around the hot spot position
  • seeing is very variable also... going from 0.8 to 1.4

09:31 - lost guide star - RPCERROR
  • repeated iif_preset and then dice5_1_75d
  • we were taking 0.05 sec images - repeat dice5
  • dice5 failed giving the following error on the IDL script:
===> Error in irc_offsetpointing
err = Resmsg[0] = OffsetPointing result status: Error
err = Resmsg[1] = dx.adsc: [moveAbs.sendString] Would block
  • and this on the BP10 log:
Fri Mar 25 09:53:08.807 2011 Offset alert for right IRTC: dx.adsc: [moveAbs.sendString] Would block
Fri Mar 25 09:53:08.824 2011 Offset command failed for right IRTC
  • run dice5_1_75d again - this time it seems to be working

10:26 dice5_10_75c
  • actually elevation 66

11:39 preset to start testing the pointing model routines
  • iif_preset, WT10_369, GS=10, MODE=ACTIVE, PA=-115

12:00 start pointing model script
  • T.O made pointing log file /home/telescope/PointingLogs/20110325_DX.log
  • the script tried to send the IRTC to an elevation <20 and the secondary RIPed
  • go to higher elevation, flatted mirror and restart

12:17 start script again
  • script seems to be working as expected
  • some adjustments would be necessary (e.g adjust exposure time to H mag, reduce slew time by making grid more efficient, fix too low elevations for RFBG, choose guide stars near PA=0 to save rotator time, if preset error then continue script)

12:50 End of night
