Filter Wheel Stuck

Friday, January 18, 2013 3:13 PM

Problem(s) Encountered:

The filter wheel got stuck. The error asked us to check/reset filter wheel.

From experience, we went out to the telescope to see if the connection lights were on.  They were.


We ended up restarting the filter wheel. Which after we Re-initialized Xmis

as well, seemed to fix our problem. However, the BG38 and U filters remained red on Xmis window.  I think pressing Reset filter wheel would have solved that problem, but since we were observing in V and gg420, we did not want to risk another stuck filter wheel, so we went on with out observations.
