Summary

Checkout::
  • lbccontrol:/home 66MB free (94% full)
  • lbckill/start but did not reboot. Memory usage and load look good
  • CMU clock off by <2ms
  • Ran OneBias_Bino (twice), data got to archive and look OK
  • Check these. (can start up RB_Science script to view these as they are taken)

Twilight: heavy clouds but clearing. Delaying open. 02:44 Opened a few minutes ago, starting dofpia ayt 3h+60d
02:48 Co-pointing.
02:50 Turned on mirror ventilation
02:55 Running DOFPIA continuously for 20 minutes or so to see how much focus we are having to put in in "start of the night" conditions". Setting bluelimit=10, redlimit=10 so we don't converge.

DOFPIA local log files on obs2:
  • cd /scratch/20120104/
  • tail -f lbcia.log # to see the whole thing
  • tail -f lbcia.log | grep red # to see only the red data
  • tail -f lbcia.log | grep blue # to see only the blue data
  • more lbcia.log | grep red # to pull the full set of red data from the file
  • more lbcia.log | grep blue # to pull the full set of blue data from the file

03:42 Just realized that the wrong collimation models without the t2 terms were loaded. Now loading the correct collimation models and starting again. Luckily the mirrors are still > 1 degree C out of thermal equilibrium. First impressions are encouraging.

04:36 Got a good set of data with good first impressions of temp 2 focus correction term. Now taking LBC focal plane data in ~ 1" seeing.

Graceful exit from DOFPIA (always with /X2) with "S"
04:36 RB_rVexin4.ob
04:39 RB_rVinex4.ob
DOFPIA "S" to exit after cycle 6 because red not converging, possibly because dofpia is having trouble calculating the sky background in this crowded field.
Clear c00 and active optics on red only
04:55 DOFPIA (took 5 iterations)
05:04 RB_rVexin4.ob
05:06 RB_rVinex_pa180.ob
05:10 DOFPIA (took 1 iteration)
05:13 RB_rVexin4_pa180
05:17 RB_rVinex4.ob
05:21 DOFPIA (took 4 iterations)
05:28 RB_rVsuperfoc.ob
05:33 DOFPIA (took 4 iterations)
05:40 RB_rVsuperfoc180.ob

05:50 Done with LBC, switch to MODS

06:35 Correct pointing on ACT0286 and collimation on gs=3 (R2=13.29, alt: gs=10 (R2=10.85)

CORASTIG basic functionality tests
  • a) collimate. Exit preset when collimated (stop guiding and wfsing).
  • b) Drive in 10000 nm Z6 on M1 PSF gui.
  • c) Send track preset to same star, when tracking run corastig.
  • d) Repeat a-c for +5000 nm Z6, -5000 nm Z6, -10000 nm Z6.
