Mmirs first light run

MMIRS First Light Run

Imaging results

Long slit results

Lack of multislit results

Flexure problem

Baffle problem

Imaging and longslit observations

Imaging and Longslit Observations

Imaging demonstrated successfully

Several longslit observations done

Still being analyzed

Weather late in run not good … spectroscopic observations curtailed.

Tarantula Nebula J,H,K pseudocolor – 0.4” seeing

Multislit spectroscopy

Multislit Spectroscopy

Poor weather prevented demonstration multislit capability

MMIRS has operated successfully in multislit mode on MMT

Baffle problem

Baffle Problem

MMIRS is somewhat underbaffled

Light leak – problem for K band obs

Have designed and built a new deployable baffle to correct this

2010a f 5 staffing

2010a f/5 Staffing

f/5 run 24 March - 3 May

SAO team members already at LCO installing new grism and deployable baffle

SAO f/5 team presence from start of run until 23 April

Osip & Postdocs to cover last week w/support from V. Suc

Schedule “soft” due to irregularity of transportation

Slitmask production

Slitmask Production

2010a masks produced with by SAO staff

Would like to retire this responsibility – mask design and fabrication

xfitmask software nearly ready for general use

instructions on use @:

http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/wiki/mmti/MMTI/MMIRS/ObsManual/MMIRS+Mask+Making

Requires SAO network access

Only competent vendor for mask we are aware of is:

PhotoMachining Inc.

4 Industrial Park Drive

Pelham, NH. 0307

P.:603-882-9944; F.:603-886-8844

2010b campaign planning

2010b Campaign Planning

  • Slit masks production

  • Pre-allocation?

  • Staffing/support

Slit mask production for 2010b

Slit Mask Production for 2010b

2010a masks produced & procurments arranged by SAO

Do not want this to remain the status quo

xfitmask is maturing ➥ demo

Have responsive, competent vendor

Issues:

CfA network access to use xfitmask

Procurement processing

Finding other mask suppliers

CTIO? LCO?

Staffing support in 2010b

  • ASz, JR & BMcL will spend ~1 month each support 2010a run ⇨ this is onerous

  • However:

    • Ops software under intense development

    • Experience base is broadening

    • ASz & BMcL will supervise startup of MMIRS & Megacam, but expecting to off-load observing support

Staffing/Support in 2010b

From B. McLeod

Andy,

For now, I would like to avoid the weeks of Aug15-28 for starting a MMIRS run

if possible.

We're in the process of planning our summer activities, and depending on

how this pans out I may be able to return the week of Aug 15 to the mix,

which would be week 1 of a bright run. (Full moon is Aug 24). I hope to

know more in the next week or so.

2011 planning

2011 Planning

How long will MMIRS & MegaCam stay at LCO?

Oversubscription for Magellan swelled by availability of f/5 instrumentation

Would like to provide uninterrupted access for continuing programs

Was some slight bruising during MMIRS shipping

Operations are becoming increasingly regularized

Moving to MMT (and back to LCO) requires significant software effort

Consider AO gating departure of MMIRS and Megacam

Will probably be at MMT 2+ years
