Startup Night 20140910

Summary

Started in poor weather (high humidity) with spectral verification. Humidity seemed to drop but rose again quickly and we had a telescope problem that stopped azimuth motion (see nightlog for more details). Moved on to LUCI closed dome flexure calibration. Grating tilts did not stabilize for most, but believe this is only a time out error.

0189 N375 through slit image (0.75" Longslit) 1x10.0s
0190 blind filters for dark

06:30 Waiting to see how humidity will settle and AZ drive will work out.

07:30 Humidity = 99. Setting up for flexure compensation:

  • LUCI authorized at LFBG
  • EL and LFBG Rotator enabled
  • Set rotator to -90 degrees
  • AGw1 stages homed
  • High-bay flood lights OFF (OK if other lights remain on)
  • Calibration unit in beam
  • Spectroscopic Sieve mask in the FPU
  • Lamp(s) need to be turned on/off manually
  • Scripts located in /home/observer/LBTO/FlexComp_Calib
Started with tests for exposure time 191; found 10s was reasonable

07:40: 0190, 0191: 1X [1X 10s] = dark
