Summary

  1. AZCAM server update successful
  2. Poorseeing prevented MODS transform_collect but verified and fixed routines
  3. LFBG rotator center and M3 alignment
  4. Seeing too poor for field aberration data collection or AO checks
  5. Ran Science like OB's with LUCI2
    1. Non sidereal G210 - Uranus
    2. G200 RW Aur
    3. Imaging of several standards

Night Plan

  1. Software updates

AZCAM Server update

Testing new AZCAM server update - hotspot and shack-hartmann sensor imaging on new software of azcam.

AO Requested Updates
  1. Deploy slope zero patch for night time and monitor for any events and to log in case of an event how the system responds
  2. Verify the NCPA+Fourier AO SW

MODS Transform
  1. Collect transform data with MODS (2hrs needed) (Critical)

LFBG focal station checkout
  1. AGW2 Alignment (Critical)
  2. M3 Alignment RFBG (Critical)

Bino Field Aberration data collect
  1. Field Aberration (low)

LUCI2 Science Verification
  1. Science like OB's - Located in LUCI_restart_v1.84.xml
    1. N375 Imaging
      1. If clear, Photometric standards located in: Service_Observing/Restart_2023/LUCI/PhotStd
      2. GSPC S893-D (Start), GSPC P247 U (Middle), G191B2B (end)
    2. N1.8 G200 or G210 Spectroscopy (Longslit Testing)
      1. RW Aur (5hr) G200 HK and zJ + Telluric
    3. Non Sidereal Preset
      1. Uranus (3hr) G210 J, H, K
LUCI2 AO on-sky checks
