There was an error in the PCS for the computation of the stage position.The error in the computation is

evident in the difference between the target star position and AO reference star position (see above).

Doug corrected the sofware of the PCS taking into account the proper motion: it was not computing properly the correction for

the AO star and then the WFS stages were not going in the correct position, infact the star was correctly at the center of the IRTC

and the stage somewhat (tens of arcsec) out.

I restarted IDL to take into account the sofware updates.
