How to Make a Collimation Model to be used by the PSF Subsystem at LBT
The instructions located here should be updated to not list old procedures, and the default location for IDL procedures and such should be moved to /home/LBTO/CollimationModels (or something like that). We are trying to migrate away from the lbcobs account and collimation is now needed for a growing list of Gregorian instruments.
Some additional comments:
Should also correct pointing prior to taking collimation data
IRAF should be set up to auto-extract the necessary information from a list of images
Instruments should normalize their header keywords where possible
Better: IDL should take an input list of files and read in the information it needs
One IDL procedure should handle data from all instruments
IDL script should automatically write out gif image
IDL script should write the appropriate model temperature and Z linear temperature coefficient (+0.1 mm/degC).
