2013 March Technical Observing Plan

Observers

Daytime Tasks

  • ALERT! Make flat fields and/or bad pixel files for AGW1 and AGW2 (JCG)
  • ALERT! Make InformationTechnology for updated configuration files

Nighttime Tasks

  • ALERT! AO Pyramid stage transformation data collection on DX with IRTC (DLM) priority=medium
  • ALERT! CentOS 6 upgrade to adaptive optics software (LF) priority=medium, sky=flexible, time=5 hours
  • ALERT! More Data for 2D astigmatism look-up table on SX or DX (any) priority=medium, sky=flexible

Front Bent Gregorian Binocular Tasks

  • DONE Confirm binocular DETXY offset amplitudes on-sky - Issue 4142 (JMH) priority=high, sky=good seeing, time=1 hour (combine with Issue 4328 tests) Checked this on 20130202, but didn't collect extensive data. More data on 20130330.
    • Send SYNC binocular ACTIVE presets to 3 targets with well-aligned, and mis-aligned pointing.
  • ALERT! Measure leaking rates with guiding blocked (JMH) priority=medium, sky=good seeing, time=1 hour
  • ALERT! Measure leaking performance with guiding running (JMH) priority=low, sky=good seeing, time=2 hours
  • ALERT! Measure practical dither range with the new models (JMH) priority=low, sky=flexible, time=1 hour
  • DONE Preliminary Data for Binocular Collimation Model (JMH or DLM) priority=medium, sky=flexible, temperature=stable
    • At a number of elevations, copoint and collimate (6 stars on 20130326)(more data on 20130330)
  • DONE More offset tests for Issue 4514 - other side jumps during IE/CA correction

Other Binocular Tasks

  • DONE Measure co-tracking in LUCI1/LBC-Red mixed mode observing as Issue 4291. (JMH) priority=med, sky=average seeing, time=1.5 hour (20130327)
  • DONE Test Doug's binocular observing commands in IDL (DLM) priority=low, sky=poor, time=2 hours (20130326)

Calibration Task

  • Measure photometric properties of AGW guide cameras (JCG) priority=medium, sky=photometric, time=5 hours
