SN Ramp Down Plan SN Group (Request)
121 2 Daniel Gruen
1) Drop E fields after one more epoch (previous epoch was Jan 18, 19)
122 2 Daniel Gruen
2) Take S and X fields off deadman on Feb 1 (may still be observed with seeing trigger)
123 2 Daniel Gruen
3) Raise C field deadman to 9 days on Feb 1
124 2 Daniel Gruen
 
125 2 Daniel Gruen
Comments on request:
126 2 Daniel Gruen
Recollection is airmass limit must be 2 to get the C-fields in mid-Feb.
127 2 Daniel Gruen
Check in 2/9 to 2/14 break whether to enable C-fields any more on deadman.
128 2 Daniel Gruen
Eric N is running simulations
129 2 Daniel Gruen
Eric N has a separate deep and shallow field global deadman.
130 2 Daniel Gruen
 
131 2 Daniel Gruen
Plan for now:
132 2 Daniel Gruen
 run for now with airmass limits at 1.7
133 2 Daniel Gruen
Json scripts to control when SN deadman occur.
134 2 Daniel Gruen
 
135 2 Daniel Gruen
