Summary

First half was TCS testing of Build 2013C. Lots of closed-dome testing, but never opened due to rain, clouds, humidity.

            Measured bi-nodal astigmatism

                 rfbg
             From 45 Astigmatism Measurement
                 On-Sky Arcseconds
        -------------------------------------------
         Tip =  37.7", Delta IE = -37.7"
        Tilt = 127.4", Delta CA = -127.4"


                 rfbg
             From 0 Astigmatism Measurement
                 On-Sky Arcseconds
        -------------------------------------------
         Tip =  30.6", Delta IE = -30.6"
        Tilt = 122.8", Delta CA = 122.8"

 I would suggest moving only 100" in Tilt/CA and
collect another small set (10 or so stars) and then we
can make another correction.  Then a proper set
(20ish stars) would be good.

 I turned off high order corrections in LUCI_IRTC_R.cfg
by setting WFS_high_factor to 0.0

 I set the IRTC flat to, what I think is, the correct flat

[AOeng@adsecdx ~]$ cd /towerdata/meas/adsec_calib/flat/Applicable
[AOeng@adsecdx Applicable]$ ls -l IRTC.sav
lrwxrwxrwx 1 AOeng aoacct 66 Nov 30  2011 IRTC.sav -> /towerdata/meas/adsec_calib/flat/Applicable/20111009_500modes1.sav
[AOeng@adsecdx Applicable]$ ls -l default.sav
-rw-r--r-- 1 AOeng aoacct 96372 Aug 31 15:17 default.sav
[AOeng@adsecdx Applicable]$ rm IRTC.sav 
[AOeng@adsecdx Applicable]$ ln -s default.sav IRTC.sav
[AOeng@adsecdx Applicable]$ ls -l IRTC.sav
lrwxrwxrwx 1 AOeng aoacct 11 Sep 13 04:00 IRTC.sav -> default.sav
