h2. Why

5 1 Kevin Reil
The focus tests are to attempt to determine if our current "best focus" is truly the "best focus". Evidence suggests we are fairly close.
6 1 Kevin Reil
7 1 Kevin Reil
The test will consist of moving the focus set point to +25 microns for 10 exposures, -25 microns for 10 exposures and back to 0 microns for 10 exposures. This is done by issuing the following command via the Architect Console

h2. How
10 4 Kevin Reil
11 5 Kevin Reil
take 3 x 60 s exposures at with nominal settings (defaults) to get into focus/aligned.
12 1 Kevin Reil
<pre> FOCUS.AOS set set_point 0,0,25,0,0,0 </pre>
13 5 Kevin Reil
take 10 x 60 s exposures
14 1 Kevin Reil
<pre> FOCUS.AOS set set_point 0,0,-25,0,0,0 </pre>
15 5 Kevin Reil
take 10 x 60 s exposures
16 1 Kevin Reil
<pre> FOCUS.AOS set set_point 0,0,0,0,0,0 </pre>

The command can be issued at any time during an exposure and will take effect on the following exposure.

h2. When
26 1 Kevin Reil
27 4 Kevin Reil
h3. During second half of night (preferred)
28 4 Kevin Reil
29 1 Kevin Reil
The observer should pick a field and (good) filter and simply track on that field for the above 30 exposures. Please note expids in the elog.
30 3 Kevin Reil
31 4 Kevin Reil
h3. During obstac observations
32 3 Kevin Reil
