Find a good guide star for your target.

Read the Lucifer Observation Preparation Suggestions page.

Pick a guide star for your target

Use Olga's perl script, luciguide.pl

perl luciguide.pl 12 10 23.4 +44 10 20 84.

84=position angle

The command line version of ds9 that you are running must be 5.7 or later.

The README file has instructions on how to use it.

Chose a guide star with R = 12 - 16.

You may have to rotate the field to get a good guide star.

Be sure your guide star is not too close to the edge of the patrol field, or it will be lost as you dither.
