aTmCam daily checklist

DES Observer 1 is expected to check that the dome for aTmCam is open and that 4 cameras are powered.
The check is to be done every night after DES obsereving has started. (after you enable obstac)

There are two files that you need to check:
obsdome.log is to log when the dome of aTmCam open and close
obsccd.log is to log when the instrument is powered on/off and starts/stops observation
These logs can only be seen within CTIO network, normally.

After observer1 enable obstac,
  • To check if the dome for aTmCam is open, please go to:
    http://atmcam.ctio.noao.edu/atmcamlogs/obsdome.log
    and scroll all the way down and find some words like "south panel open" and "north panel open" and check that this is the latest action and the time (in UTC) of these actions are from the evening of today (maybe 1-2 hours before you check). If the dome is not open, then ask Telops to open it.
  • To check if the cameras are powered on, please go to:
    http://atmcam.ctio.noao.edu/atmcamlogs/obsccd.log
    and scroll all the way down and find some words like "Establishing a link to the USB 1/2/3/4 Camera" and "Link Established to Camera" and check that this is the latest action and the time (in UTC) of these actions are from the evening of today (maybe 1-2 hours before you check). Make sure that all 4 cameras are connected.
  • if either of these is not OK (i.e. dome cannot open or cameras are not powered on) email Ting Li () or find her on skype using the skype on the Observer1 computer.
  • if everything is working, then put a new entry in the elog saying "aTmCam is checked".
