SUSI User's Notes
Observing Using the Scheduler
The scheduler takes most of the hard work out of observing with SUSI.
Read Mike's Users notes at /usr/local/susi/doc/scheduler.tex for a list
Firstly write two script files, a setup.sched and HR????.sched file.
Store these in /export/snert/data/schedules/
Examples of these files follow.
Actually setup.sched is not that useful nowadays but here it is anyway.
Setup.sched (edit where obviously necessary)
sid n4 s2 n
scans 1000 50
fs -500 500 15
comment Begin Oct 7-8, 2004
comment Observer APJ
betDor.sched example (edit for your target & cals)
What do these do?
sets sids to use, sets star/foto scans, reopens all connections,
sets next filenumber, sets fringe search parameters
and adds some (optional!) comments.
acquires an alignment star, auto-aligns
then completes an observing cycle (including photometry after every run),
then calls itself to repeat the alignment & cycle
Follow the Setup and Alignment procedures.
Before Aligning on a star do load ../schedules/setup.sched in scheduler
When you are ready to slew to the alignment star do
load ../schedules/betDor.sched in scheduler
On starting the scheduler it:
creates a new data directory and cd's into this and starts a scheduler.log
