This night is lost to weather -- rain.
We did some closed-dome tests of binocular collimation in mixed instrument modes.
Binocular Collimation Tests
Mirror positions are recorded in telemetry.
LBC-Blue and LBC-Red
Already authorized LBC and LBC
03:02 Preset both
LUCI1 and LUCI2
03:06 Authorize LUCI and LUCI
03:08 Preset fails because DX M3 didn't move?
03:10 Preset both succeeds.
LUCI1@LFBG and LBC-Red
03:13 Authorize LUCI1@LFBG and LBC-Red
See Issue 4795 for checkboxes not propagating.
03:26 Syncronized presets -- as expected, we hit -X limits on DX M1
03:28 Send Coma-free pointing correction to DX M1 only. Tilt=+10; Tilt=+20; Tilt=-20; Tilt=+30 arcsec
03:32 collimation good on both sides
LBC-Blue and LUCI2@RFBG
03:35 Authorize LBC-Blue and LUCI@RFBG
03:38 Syncronized presets - Note that this does NOT drive SX M1 into limits as you might expect from symmetry.
LBTI and LBC-Red
03:43 Authorize LBTI and LUCI@RFBG
03:44 Syncronized presets
LBTI and LBTI
03:49 Authorize LBTI on both sides
03:51 Syncronized presets
03:55 end of this data - park telescope
