INSTRUCT.BOT It takes some time to get the right pointing/focus for the visitor instrument. I'd be glad to star at the requested time for the ToO (00:05:00 Local time). As a usual procedure for pointing an focus we have: 1. Ask the operator to do a pointing (18 48 09.2214 -31 26 32.460 ); 2. Center the target in the WFS (acquisition camera); 3. Send light as if we were going to use Goodman; 4. Apply an offset of 377" to the north (PA=0); 5. Ask to the operator to insert the "projector mirror" to send light to RAPTOR; 6. Change the by +1030 with respect to the nominal focus. INSTRUCT.EOT Visitor.EOT
