Summary

Details

Daytime Closed Dome Testing

  • Kevin
  • Jesper, Michael, Ilya
  • Doug

06:50 Preset BOTH TRACK Success

07:00 Ilya send BOTH preset from PepsiPFU control. Failed with not guide star

07:05 PepsiPFU send BOTH Preset ACTIVE with guide star. Success. Telescope is guiding and collimating on Artificial Star

07:15 Authorize LEFT only. Pepsi send Monocular preset. Success.

07:20-45 Doug finds that guidecam_rotAngleOffs value is properly used to rotate az/el guide corrections sent to PCS. Also, guidingCorr_flip_x, guidingCorr_flip_y, sfp_factor_x and sfp_factor_y all have the desired result on the values sent to PCS.
  • NOTE A change from +1 to -1 slightly changes the value sent by maybe 10%. Is this because the guidingCorr and sfp_factor are applied before the subtraction of the GS_SFP position that was used in the preset? Need to check this

08:00 Ilya sends a setHotspot request from Pepsi to GCS. Success

08:30 more later

On-Sky

01:00 David finds stars on both sides. John does some AO by hand.
Z5 oriented as "+". while Z6 oriented as "X". SX primary needs -2400 Z5 to compensate the disabled actuator 329.

01:12 Preset ACTIVE BOTH to 11th mag @ 77 el.
  • first guider right 1-8, left none
  • first acquire right 1, left 1
  • RIGHT failed no guide start in acquisition
  • LEFT failed after 8 guides, not stable

01:21 David sets pointing on bright star with ACQUIRE presets
SX IE=-46 CA=-26
DX IE=+20 CA=-195

01:28 Preset ACTIVE BOTH to 11.6 mag @ 82 el on the meridian
  • first guider right 1-8, left none
  • first acquire right 1, left 1
  • RIGHT failed no guide start in acquisition
  • LEFT failed after 8 guides, not stable

offset +10 IE on LEFT guider image 620-660 03:23 3:27:23 offset +10 IE on RIGHT guider image 520-560 03:26:40 to 3:27:30x
