Before starting:

  • Target ID 4 is for making pointing models
  • Make sure exposure script for current camera is there, with an appropriate exposure time.

Assuming the telescope is T0

  1. rts2-mon/T0: Set model count to 0
  2. rts2-mon/EXEC:
    1. check auto_loop and default_auto_loop are true
    2. run 'now 4' (for ~20 exposures)
  3. shell: (recommended)
    1. run 'rts2-nightreport -i' to look at observations as they happen
    2. back up old model /etc/rts2/ir.model
  4. after ~20 exposures, run 'rts2-opentpl-errors -c' to calculate (and load) the new model.
  5. rts2-mon/T0: run save_model (to write new /etc/rts2/ir.model

Repeat this above pattern again with a larger number of points (e.g. 50) to refine it.
