UT 20150506 LUCI2 AO Nighttime Commissioning

Observer LUCI-Team: JHeidt, APramskiy, DThompson
Observer AO: DMiller (LBTO)
Telescope Operator: SAllenson
LBTO Support: TSargent

Plan for the night

- Setup AO whenever possible depending on weather

- Otherwise continue AFC-testing

Summary

- Night lost due to humidity all night

- Further AFC-tests

- Camera-repro tests (Ok between N3.75 and N1.8 camera)

Details

All times are UT
Files are luci2.20150506.NNNN.fits

Sky became gradually clearer around sunset, but still clouds floating above LBT
According to forecast we may have a chance tonight, depending on whether humidity drops

02:10 Sunset, partly cloudy, humidity 100%, temp = 0.7deg, wind ~5m/s

Alexander mostly working on AFC algorithm.

05:30 Mostly clear now, but humidity still 100%, we need to be patient

### Camera reproducibility test, just between N1.8 and N3.75 cameras

Camera_repro.xml (old script from prior run) in daytime_com directory
0071 00 ROT=270

There was a problem putting the "N30 LS neu 1" mask away that auto-corrected. It occurred turning
the mask from transport to storage. From the message database:

2348020 2015-05-06 06:50:25 INSTRUMENT ** Luci TWO TWO_MOSUnit executing transition: "mask handling unit head rotation - move motor to absolute angle"

Set ROT=270
0071 0080 Bad...one of the filters was "free" so no light on detector
0081 0090 1x3.0s K Coarse spots a few 000 adu peak in N3.75 cam

There is a small popup that keeps coming up that has a red X on it and it says "Readout".
The data are being taken and saved. Not sure what this is.

Set ROT=180
0091 0100 1x3.0s K
Set ROT=090
0101 0110 1x3.0s K
Set ROT=000
0111 0120 1x3.0s K

=> Camera-repro between N1.8/N3.75 OK

Check manually if the N30 camera problem is rotator angle dependent
@ROT=0
N3.75 -> N30 ... failed
On MCU gui move -633 steps and re-init (@ real N3.75)
@ROT=90
N3.75(0122) -> N30(0123) ... failed with Cam actually @N30 but status "unknown"
@ROT=180
N3.75(0124) -> N30(0125) ... failed with Cam actually @N30 but status "unknown"
init camera moves 1 x -15 steps and then says N3.75, but this is the N30.
@ROT=270
N3.75(0126) -> N30(0127, or 128?) ... failed with Cam actually @N30 but status "unknown"
init camera moves 1 x -15 steps and then says N3.75, but this is the N30.

08:30 Clouds are back again + still 100% humidity

DMiller wants an N30 image of the pointing mask...
It appears to be in LUCI2 but disabled on the MOS engineering GUI. I suppose this is
because those positions have not been "fine tuned" yet by Peter. Email sent.

11:30 Humidity still 100% + fog => night lost

Steve is closing up
