UT 20120601 AGw#1 Performance Verification (2nd Half)

Observer: DMiller, KBoutsia (LBTO)
Telescope Operator: DHuerta (LBTO)

Summary

First half of the night Michele, Michelle and John tested nonsiderial functions

Second half, we:
  • Collected a set of transformation data in OK seeing 0.8 to 0.9"
  • Collected more Astig LUT data
  • Redetermined the center of rotation on the IRTC

Details

New LUT, GCS/COW Collimation

07:14 preset AO1003, el 75, 5 iter

07:18 preset AO433, el 43, 4 iter

07:21 preset AO504, el 65, 3 iter

07:24 preset AO416, el 29, 6 iter

Seeing is <1.0" so off to transform

AGw#1 Transformation

Seeing 0.7" FWHM on guider, 0.9" on Dim

07:43 transform_collect, EXP=0.5

08:45 preset cancelled because the shell ripped (anemometer expired!!)
  • doug had to cycle power on adsec

09:21 recovered the error with the secondary - now the shell is set
  • transform_collect, exp=0.5, START=29

09:36 Done with transform_collect,
