Short week for me:

  • LUCI
    • Made small spread sheet on LUCI FITS AO/ARGOS keywords provenance.
    • Save AFC subwindows and display them in a python program on demand. The program will be a standalone program that listens to subwindow file events, when it receives one such event it will rename and save the file locally and alert the python program to upload the new image. This software will help sciops to debug the luci AFC backend.
  • OT
    • Look at possible use of proper motion to display target in TPE. Put on hold till Michelle finds out more about it.
