Night Plan (Eng)

If LFBG is operational

  • OSCO in twilight (No NCPA and NCPA) - until 18:43
  • AO Testing - 18:43-19:15
    • scripts: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021B_D_E/LUCI/AO_ESM/AO/AO_Testing_V43.xml
    • Bin 3 and Bin 4 stars
    • Preference given to WD dwards (denoted in the OT file)

If LFBG is NOT operational

  • LBC/TMS Testing - handover to PETS/PEPSI 19:30hr
    • TMS Setup
      • Service_Observing/2021B_D_E/TMS_13Dec
      • ssh telescope@robs
      • cd /lbt/lbto/supportscripts/MetrologySupport
      • Check if reference file is copied over (J. Hill or O. Kuhn will verify)
      • start ./tms_loop.pl to get mirrors into position
      • CTRL^C the TMS
      • Go to co-point field, run dofpia
      • AFTER dofpia is completed then run TMS
        • First Set reference: ./lbc_set_tms_offset.py -s 2
          • this will take a while before returning prompt
        • In MetrologySupport directory execute ./tms_loop.pl
      • co-point with lbcrangebal, then go to field of choice
      • Start running scripts
      • CTRL-C before running DOFPIA again - if run DOFPIA and TMS simultaneously, the two will "fight" - TMS will backout anything DOFPIA does!

Poor Weather Contingency

  • In case TMS/LBC can't be run - and/or - its determined conditions too poor to execute LBC/TMS and/or LFBG LUCI-1 AO
  • MODS-Bino Local Mergers
    • OT File: /home/lbto/Service_Observing/2021B_D_E/PoorWeather/LocalMergers/COBandhead_Mergers_V33.xml
    • Any conditions - can be run mono or bino
    • SpecStd - Feige 110
    • Arp 230
