Heavy Thunderstorms at Sunset. This night has also been lost to weather, but we got lots of other interesting stuff done.
- SX Adsec Electronics Shutdown when they get too warm
- Can't Communicate with AGW2
- SX M3 doesn't move when we authorize
- Can't load SX AdSec programs
- One bad actuator (cable to dist board?) on DX primary)
- Converted Pointingstar5 to F95 and have it running.
- Closed dome presets completed
- M3 swing arms fully operational
- Fixed Perl scripts used by DOFPIA to talk to LBC
- Mirror Ventilation
- Shutter Doors
- Vent Doors
Details (UT Times)
00:00 Cleaning the control room.
01:00 JHoward and JUrban inspecting both of the M3 swing arms.
01:30 CBiddick and MDelapena are running authorizing tests on 2012G (one of few closed-dome activities that we didn't
finish last night.)
01:40 JMorris is removing the MODS1 collimator covers
02:19 Torsten can't ping MOXA in AGW2 reliably.
02:30 Cycling AGW2 power doesn't help.
04:00 We loose connection with SX M2 hexapod again. We move the telescope to horizon to check the AdSec
The electronics box looks happy - not turned off by thermal switch or loss of communication. Hmmmm?
Communication with hexapod returned while we were moving the telescope.
05:00 Cycling power 4 more times on AGW2 didn't help. We did verify that the AGW had power by plugging in an alarm clock at
the conveniently provided socket.
05:35 Turning on LBC failed. Reboot lbccontrol
05:46 Successful LBC preset with dome closed
06:15 Perl scripts that DOFPIA uses to talk to LBC are not working.
IDL problems again with SX Adaptive Secondary.
06:30 SX AdSec
shuts off again. This time we catch it with the red light on that indicates a thermal cutoff.
07:01 SX Adsec rack has turned back on.
07:15 The problem in the DOFPIA perl scripts was an obsolete URL. I changed lbccontrol.lbt.as.arizona.edu to lbccontrol.
07:53 Doug can't get the program for the SX secondary to load. He's added a note to Issue 4045. This is unrelated to Issue 4188.
Runa can look at it in the morning.
08:01 An authorize for LBTI on both sides fails to move the SX tertiary.
08:05 Stopped and restarted OSS to be really sure I've got the patch for V2.27.1 running
09:40 Converted Pointingstars5 to f95, and have it running from /home/LBTO/POINTING/
