WFCAM alignment

Alignment and Wavefront sensing with WFCAM


The following links contain instructions for initial alignment of WFCAM during the first nights of a WFCAM block and how to carry out, analyse and implement WFCAM wavefront sensing data. On the first night of a block, the order should be 1) tilt correction, 2) wavefront sensing and 3) M2 translation correction. On a typical QA night, only the wavefront sensing is necessary.
