PNS MANUAL: operation / focus offsets between filters


It seems that filter changes affect the focussing. On this page we will collect empirical focus offsets between filters. At this stage it is best to determine these offsets during the day, before the observations, but by collecting the information we may be able to start predicting these.
Here are the offsets determined for the A -> B change, i.e. the changes required if the spectrograph was in focus with A and you change to B. negative values mean a counter-clockwise turn. From an unknown author.

L1 0.925 -> -0.45 
L2 0.875 -> -0.40 
L3 0.475 -> -0.00

R1 0.15 -> -0.725
R2 0.85 -> -0.425
R3 0.75 -> -0.32
