A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Small steps ...

Today Hans was able to operate the front shutter and the front iris using LabView. The licensing problem seems to have been cleared up (it seems to have been a typo in a form somewhere - perhaps it happened at MLO, or later at DMI). The CCD camera and the Magma no longer are listed with 'yellow triangles' in the system - we have yet to plug it in and see it operate.

Next steps are to use same methods to get all devices running - Engineeering mode seems to be dead somehow, but all the 'sub VIs' are there and so far we have gotten the front shutter and iris VIs to work - can slew telescope from sub VI also.
