Each evening, at the startup of the telescope, the CheckAOCorrection template is executed for 5 instrumental setups:

  • dichroic - VIS, WFS type - VIS, WFS mode - 1-3, camera S27
  • dichroic - VIS, WFS type - VIS, WFS mode - 5-1, camera S27
  • dichroic - N20C80, WFS type - IR, WFS mode - 3-2, camera S27
  • dichroic - N20C80, WFS type - IR, WFS mode - 6-1, camera S27
  • dichroic - N20C80, WFS type - IR, WFS mode - 9-1, camera S27
The data are images of the optical fiber light shone on the detector. They are used to monitor performance of NAOS - the NACO adaptive optics system.

CHECK AO frame This is an example of the master calibration CHECK AO frame. It is a pipeline product of the "naco_img_strehl" recipe. The point like source is an image of the optical fiber light.

QC1 parameters

parameter QC1 database: table, name procedure
"strehl" naco_checkao strehl ratio of the fiber light image
"strehl_posx" naco_checkao x-position of the fiber light image
"strehl_posy" naco_checkao y-position of the fiber light image
"strehl_flux" naco_checkao mean flux in counts
"strehl_peak" naco_checkao mean peak intensity in counts
"strehl_error" naco_checkao error of determined strehl ratio
"strehl_rms" naco_checkao RMS of determined strehl ratio


top strehl_daily

The following plot shows the temporal evolution of the strehl ratio determined for the fiber light image. All 5 instrumental setups are represented.

top xpos_daily

The trending plot shows the X position of the image of the fiber light as a function of time. Again 5 instrumental setups are represented

top ypos_daily

This trending plot shows the temporal evelution of the Y position of the image of the fiber light determined by the pipeline.
