Night Log 2012-10-24

SA: Tim
SO: Fred
Others: charl


frustrating night with only one block accepted. abysmal seeing during the first half gave way to steady seeing that was at least mediocre in the 2nd half. however, a slew of technical problems slowed things down considerably. first the primary mirror and then the RSS slitmask mechanism. several PCON lockups happened over the course of the night, sometimes at very inconvenent times.

on the bright side, my calsys script was fleshed out and tested further. it can now query RSS and configure calsys for flats automatically based on my recipe from the wiki. selecting a lamp will coordinate insertion of cal screen, selection of stage, and turning on of lamp into one command.
