How to run observation manually

This text describes how to disable the selector and to manually control which target is to be observed.

  1. run rts2-mon
  2. Choose the SEL entry (selector) in the left-hand pane (Up/Down keys)
  3. Switch to the right-hand pane (Tab to switch panes)
  4. Select the selector_enabled entry (Up/Down keys)
  5. Choose false from the options (Enter to show options, Up/Down to select, Enter to confirm)
  6. Return to the device list (Tab key, twice)
  7. Choose the EXEC - executor component
  8. Now it is possible to either:
    • Queue the next target using next <target_id> command, e.g to queue target 1001, write next 1001 and hit enter. The relevant field in the right-hand pane should change to reflect this.
    • Schedule an immediate observation by writing now <target_id>.
  9. At the end of manual observation, do not forget to switch the system back to autonomous mode.
