06:00 Starting up MODS
  • mods1 start gui
  • execMODS ~MODSeng/modsScripts/Support/modsWake.pro
  • modsDisp

06:23 I have modified the flat field calibrations from yesterday and I am sending a script to see if it works
  • ./script.txt
  • our data begin from mods1b 0032 / mods1r 0027
  • execMODS bias8.cal mods1b 0032-0041 / mods1r 0027-0036
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0647new.cal mods1b 0042-0051 / mods1r 0037-0046 the ref slits seem to be saturated in the red (as expected...) and with QTH1+UG5 also in the blue are saturated (again as expected...)
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0717new.cal mods1b 0052-0061/ mods1r 0047-0056
  • execMODS gmosFlatNonino0744new.cal mods1b 0062-0071 / mods1r 0057-0066
  • execMODS grmosflats.55.FIORE3new.cal mods1b 0072-0076 / mods1r 0067-0071
  • execMODS grmosflats.56.FIORE1new.cal mods1b 0077-0081 / mods1r 0072-0076
  • execMODS grmosflats.57.FIORE2new.cal mods1b 0082-0086 / mods1r 0077-0081
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT1.0new.cal mods1b 0087-0096 / mods1r 0082-0096 the counts seem OK for all lams
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT5.0new.cal mods1b 0097-0098 / mods1r 0097-0099 the first lamp combination is SATURATED!!! abort - need to find correct exptimes

08:57 script interrupted for the SlitFlatLBT5.0new.cal - to change exptime

09:01 while deciding how to change exptime for LS_5''
  • execMODS grpixflats.cal mods1b 0099-0108 / mods1r 0100-0104

09:34 Test with the LS_5'' to find exptimes
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT5.0new.cal mods1b 0109-0111 / mods1r 0105-0109 the second lamp still saturated / the third red lamp also saturated
  • I bring exptimes to minimum but still flats are saturated....
  • repeat the flats with the Vflat lamps for both chanels!
  • execMODS SlitFlatLBT5.0.cal mods1b 0112-0116 / mods1r 0110-0114

10:08 End of calibrations

10:42 execMODS ~MODSeng/modsScripts/Support/modsSleep.pro
