UT 06:36 - started up LUCI GUIs

UT 06:58 - handing over from LN to ARGOS - initializing both LUCIs

UT 07:01 - LUCI-2 mask put away

L1 0001-0002 - 2.51sec test darks

L2 0001-0002 - 2.51sec test darks

UT 07:08 - pointing check -

UT 07:13 - collimation check nearby -

UT 07:16 - sending collimation preset to Pal2

UT 07:19 - some issues on the ARGOS AO side

UT 07:25 - still troubleshooting laser/camera issue

UT 07:45 - still troubleshooting laser/camera issue

UT 08:06 - AOS not connected on satellite gui, now its connected

UT 08:13 - powering lasers back on

UT 08:15 - pointing check since we crossed the meridian

UT 08:17 - sending collimation preset to Pal2

UT 08:22 - lasers on - acquiring

UT 08:27 - Shane attempting to put lasers in the holes (patrol cameras)

UT 08:36 - still trying to align lasers

UT 08:39 - sending science preset to Pal2 field - will take exposures manually

UT 08:41 - auto set high order gain - ripples appeared in secondary

UT 08:42 - taking test exposure LUCI-1

L1 0003 - LUCI-1 reference image SL WFS shows 0.65" - LUCI-1 images show ~0.85" (2.51 sec x 13 DIT)

L2 0003 - Gains are 0.5, 0, 0 (2.51 sec x 13 DIT) - safeskip - image looks terrible

-no tip tilt or anything being applied to secondary

UT 08:50 - CCD39 shows some tip not being corrected

UT 08:56 - resetting CCD39

UT 08:59 - CCD39 not live

UT 09:01 - need to power off AO and restart

UT 09:03 -processes restarting and powering on

UT 09:04 - lasers jumped again

UT 09:08 - resend collimation preset

UT 09:10 - sending ARGOS Science (SL/ARGOS) preset

L1 0004 - test exposure LUCI-1

UT 09:16 - L2 0004 test exposure (0.5 tiptilt, 0.05 low-order, 0.0 high order)

UT 09:18 - lasers could be out of focus

UT 09:22 - L1 0005 (SL), L2 0005 (1.0, 0.2, 0.0)

UT 09:25 - sharpening lasers, DX AdSec RIP'd

UT 09:27 - recovering shell

UT 09:31 - building up forces on DX M1, still sharpening lasers

UT 09:39 - satellite closure

UT 09:40 - clearing active optics on DX
UT 09:41 - mirror panic - moving to zenith to lower/raise M1 DX

UT 09:53 - too much stress - mirror panics

UT 09:59 - sent collimation preset

UT 10:00 - right primary mirror has panicked

UT 10:06 - serious DX mirror panic - Steve calling Dan Cox for assistance

UT 10:17 - can't move the telescope because mirror is resting on hard point - can't reach John Hill

UT 10:20-11:30 - lost the earlier notes in this wiki (crate was rebooted, multiple right mirror panics, M. Wagner awakened to check on situation - decision was made to halt any observing since movement of the scope while DX is on hard points could be dangerous)

UT 11:43 - doing ARGOS CALunit tests (enclosure still open)

UT 12:20 - test LUCI-2 exposures

L2 0006 - [FeII] 2.51 x 2 NDIT - out of focus - maybe not

L2 0007 - [FeII] 2.51 x 2 NDIT = halo gone

L2 0008 - H-band 2.51 x 2 NDIT - can see star - loop open

L2 0009 - H-band 2.51 x 2 NDIT - slighlty out of focus

L2 0010 - H-band 2.51 x 2 NDIT - 2.51 x 2.5 pix fwhm - looks good

L2 0011 - H-band 2.51 x 2 NDIT - elongated shape - done on purpose

-enclosure closed

UT 01:03 - AdSec RIP'd

UT 01:52 - stopping tests - took 4 additional LUCI-2 images
