Summary

Details

07:01 Geno authorize both and find star on LEFT side.

07:15 Found star on left. IE=-42, CA = 21, Original values of -72, -75. Geno change X global offset to reduce coma and decrease IE to -72.

07:30 remove most of coma with IE=-103 CA=3. Set IE, CA back to original for RIGHT

08:00 Obviously not looking at the same star on the LEFT as on the right. Athorize RIGHT only

08:20-30 Set new transformation from 20131215 with PA=-140 only in oacontrol.conf and .conf.default. Geno restart aocserver

Dice5 Transform Check at RFBG

From the following night......

From: Michelle Edwards 
Date: Wed, 18 Dec 2013 01:02:32 -0700

Data from the AGW Transform check are here on the summit computers:

/home/lbto/data/20131217/rfbg/Transform_check

There are two sets of data, one with a 15s exposure (NDIT X DIT) and another
+with a 30s exposure (NDIT X DIT). Each set of data is a 2 X dice5 pattern with
+a  45" "throw". Data set 1 = 0070-0079; Data set 2 = 0080-0089.

0070 = 0,0, 0071 = 45, 45, 0072 = -45, -45….
0080 = 0,0, 0081 = 45, 45, 0082 = -45, -45….

I included a screen shot of the scripting tool with all 10 of the offsets. Offsets are absolute and detxy. Flexure compensation in the scripts was ON.
