LT back online

1400 BST 21 June 2006

The LT has resumed robotic operations and data from the last few nights will be disseminated shortly. Everything on the "To Do" list has been done and is in a state of recommissioning or test. The main points are:

  • It was decided that the old azimuth encoder tape needed replacing. This was achieved with a minimum of fuss and the new tape works perfectly.
  • The autoguider camera & optics have been installed and are being commissioned.
  • New coolant pipes for SupIRCam have been installed in the cable wrap. The system is pumped and cooled down to operating temperature and is undergoing recommissioning.
