Last week:
  • Ketiv pre-support

Last week
  • Completed the Binocular Planner, rev 1.0.0.
    • It is ready for team test at this time.
  • Demo of Planner for MB, ME, IS
    • The way I wrote the planner, only exposure steps have offsets.
    • Non exposure steps use the observation target for their sky position
    • For Observations that start with a nonzero offset, this may place the preset at an unexpected location. Whether this is a bug or feature may be instrument-specific
  • IT6544 OT Rules are incomplete CLOSED - The rules will probably be forever incomplete, as more are added with new instruments coming online. Not a bug.
  • IT7183 LBT 2018AV1.0.0 Unable to Generate LBC Scripts CLOSED. I have had no further reports of issues since I fixed this in early April. Bugs fixed.
This Week
  • No action items this week.


Last Week
  • Fixed the LBC power GUI that had a "refresh" bug between blue filter wheel 1 and 2 because of cable swaps awhile ago.
