PNS MANUAL: Telescope Control System

Telescope Control System

Sometimes information from the telescope (RA/Dec, etc.) does not appear in the PN.S image headers as it should because of some kind of communication problem with the TCS. The following is the proper way to bring the system up to prevent this:

When ICL is configured before a PN.S run, both the spare channels SPARE1 and SPARE2 should be selected. This can be done by selecting option 15 on the configuration menu presented when you select manual configuration when starting ICL. As well as the SPARE1 and SPARE2 channels, the CAGB should be selected also.
