Alfio, Enrico @Arcetri

1.0'' <Seeing < 1.7'' veli in quota

The star is R8 but shows as R10

Added Gopt monitor

The Alfio's modification to the SX stage movement during acquiref is not currently applied.

Strong low order detected on the shell after center pupils, when the loop is set to 1kHz befor the autogain.

This is because of low ref mag it is switching from bin1 to bin2 and the rotator is not already arrived to the good position

.21:50 (TUCSON) Alfio modifies the code adding 10s of delay at the end of acquire ref

Testing modification

22:28Error in message deserialization (will be solved by UAO)

The delay works, we don't have anymore strong low order at the 10 modes cloop before the autogain.

TT oscillate a little bit, we put 0.1 down and take new data.รน

23:00 (TUS) Preset on a star for BIN1 R=6.5 (with cirrus)

Go for BAD seeing mode with 300 modes

High order mode oscillating ( Gopt 0.16)

TN 063227 (NO LUCI) high gain lowered manually

TN 063325 (NO LUCI) gain restored as original

00:01 (TUS) MODAL Gopt

We try to implement a gain vectori correction in order to avoid the high order modes to follow the Gopt gain variation.

At each step of the Gopt, the gain values of the modes higher than 50 will be mutliplied by Gopt(curr)/Gopt(0), in order to keep the total gain measured by autogain.

Implementation failed.

00:51 We restore the old routine.

We add a safety margin of *0.9 to high modes in the autogain.
