Meade LX200GPS Pec Training

  • Setup -> Telescope -> RA PEC -> Training

Method

  • Connect to Stellarium and MaximDL
  • Telescope pointed at Vega synced
  • Moved to Epsilon Lyrae (epsilon_lyrae)
  • Camera disconnected from MaximDL and connected to PHD Guiding
PHD Guiding keeps the star in the same position at all times allowing the PEC to be trained

Data read with PEC Editor (MyScopeShort) and saved as *.txt file for further analysis

PHD Settings

1st PEC

2nd PEC

Processing Code:

  • To be added

Plots for PEC Data:

pec_data.png

Test images:

NGC6675 (Spiral Galaxy) - 1 (ngc6675_possible) and 5 min (ngc6675_definite) exposure, 2x2 Binning

M57 (Ring Nebula) - 1 min exposure, 2x2 Binning

  • Blue: 55%
    • 1.82x exposure from clear
    • 60s clear -> 109s
  • Green: 70%
    • 1.43x exposure from clear
    • 60s clear -> 86s
  • Red: 75%
    • 1.33x exposure from clear
    • 60s clear -> 80s

Test Images

M57 - Ring Nebula

M56 - Globular Cluster

  • 1x60s Luminance image

M27 - Dumbbell Nebula

  • 9x60s Luminance images stacked to form a 6x60s image
  • 1x109s Blue image
  • 1x86s + 2x60s Green images
  • 1x86s + 5x60s Red images


During the Dumbbell Nebula imaging the filters were accidentally changed due to the mouse scroll.

  • Possible workarounds:
    • Use autosave function to take images
    • Check before taking a new single image

Ring Galaxy (NGC1291) Protostar (IRAS 20324+4057)
"The bizarre looking ring galaxy NGC 1291 in Eridanus.
These fairly rare types of galaxy are usually much fainter objects, but this one at "only" 33 million light years away is easily visible in modest size telescopes though the faint outer ring of material is much fainter than this.
Its strange appearance is the likely the result of a collision with another galaxy in the distant past. 20"CDK with FLI-PL6303e camera. LRGB. L: 70mins. RGB: 5/5/10mins" - Damian Peach
IRAS 20324+4057 is a Protostar in the Cygnus OB2 Association, 4,500 light-years (1,380 parsecs) away.
This image is a composite of separate exposures acquired by the ACS instrument and the Isaac Newton Telescope. Several filters were used to sample various wavelengths. The color results from assigning different hues (colors) to each monochromatic (grayscale) image associated with an individual filter. In this case, the assigned colors are:
INT: H-alpha cyan
ACS: F606W (V) blue
ACS: F814W (I) red

The Camera was connected to Python via MaximDL
Telescope and Focuser connected to Python via the POTH Hub
Coordinates in agrement between Scope, Python and Stellarium Target was set to be -0.1 RA from current telescope position and Python SlewToTarget was tested.
Telescope moved the right amount and stopped, both telescope and Python alerted when ready.
A second test was made with +0.5 RA. Also successfully. Still with small (-0.1 RA/DEC and +0.5 RA) movements, Python SlewToCoordinates was tested successfully. With the tests done, the telescope was moved to Vega via controled movements on Stellarium
Vega was inside the Camera Range, demonstrating that the Park Method works.
Vega was recentered (-0.01 on RA) and the telescope was manually synced.
During this test, movements as small as 0.003 on RA proved to have no effect whatsoever. The next step was to test the focuser and the camera.
First, while still on continuous mode of the camera, the Python-Focuser connection was tested.
Python can read the position and move the focuser. Units are steps. 1 step = 20m Having confirmed that one can move the focuser with Python, Vega was taken out of focus to test if we could focus the star using a small

* Positive -> In * Negative -> Out *Tests*
The data below have a significant experimental error associated with the not fixed measuring equipment.
Also, they can have errors related to a possible angle between the measuring equipment and the in-out axis therefore, the real value would differ by a factor of cos(theta)

*out* * move(-5000) - 1.86mm * move(-5000) - 1.80mm * move(-5000) - 1.86mm * move(-5000) - 1.81mm * move(-5000) - 1.88mm * *mean = (1.842 0.031)mm* * move(-1000) - 0.31mm * move(-1000) - 0.40mm * move(-1000) - 0.44mm * move(-1000) - 0.27mm * move(-1000) - 0.45mm * *mean = (0.378 0.076)mm* The out movement is coherent and 5000 steps is indeed equivalent to 5x1000 steps
This give 1 step aprox 0.37m

*in* * move(5000) - 1.52mm * move(5000) - 1.55mm * move(5000) - 1.52mm * move(5000) - 1.48mm * move(5000) - 1.57mm * *mean = (1.528 0.031)mm* * move(1000) - 0.21mm * move(1000) - 0.20mm * move(1000) - 0.15mm * move(1000) - 0.30mm * move(1000) - 0.18mm * *mean = (0.208 0.050)mm* The in movement is 25 to 50% smaller than the out movement (depending on the movement size) with larger movements closer to the equivalent out.
This give 1 step being between 0.2 and 0.3m *Conclusions*
The execution of the above movements led to the following conclusions: * Focuser always finishes in a 'in-movement' (e.g. asking to move out will make the focuser goes more than needed and come back about 1mm)
* This causes the isMoving check to return before the focus being ready. * Focuser limit less than aprox 30k steps when going in.
* When close to the limit, focuser will overstep (move(5000) caused the focuser to move 2.76mm) * Focuser isn't ready when isMoving returns False.
* There's a time gap when a second comand will be accepted but not executed. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]

---------+++ Using a Bahtinov mask to find the focus: Based on Laurie's idea and [[http://starryvistas.net/articles/focusmask/focusmask.aspx][this article]] a set of 144 images were taken.
3 images for each of the 48 moves made by the focuser. All the movements were 'in' moves of 250 steps.
The images had a 5s exposure time and a master dark (made of 10 dark) was made and reduced from the images.
On each image, a gaussian was fitted to the brightest star (142/144 success) and the amplitude and sigma median were taken for each set of 3 images per focuser position. The data was then plotted and assumed to be in a quadratic form. The results can be seen on the images below. SigX.png SigY.png Amp.png For the Sigma X values, the minimum can be found at: 4841 steps
While Sigma Y minimum is at: 5411 steps
And the Amplitude maximum at: 6804 steps
According to [[LogBookAstronomyEntry0015]], the 2000 step (aprox 600m) difference would be more than double the depth of field for the telescope [[http://starizona.com/acb/ccd/advtheoryfoc.aspx][(287m on a f/10)]].
A visual analysis of the graphs would suggest a minimum and a maximum for Sigma Y and the Amplitude close to 6000 steps and, visually, the image at step 5750 (image set 23) is the sharpest presenting a nice 'X' diffraction pattern produced by the Bahtinov mask. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]] * Animation showing star going into and out of focus (with Bahtinov mask):

Project meeting on 24 / 10 /2013 Present: Chris Haynes, Paul Hallam, Ryan Cheale, Dr Boogert, Professor Cowan. Continued discussion on taking and analysis of dark frames. Due to the dome not being cold enough during the day, it is difficult to cool the camera down to -15 or -20 celcius. Therefore, the remaining readings will be taken further into winter, when the dome is colder. Objectives for analysis of dark frames: * Plot a histogram of the -5C, 60 second frame and compute the mean, median and standard deviation. * Plot the column mean and consider the standard deviation for all columns. * Plot the standard deviation as the square root of the mean and check to see if it's a Poisson Distribution. Additionally, we should think about the dark current rate (the rate at which an electric current is generated in the chip due to the production of electrons and holes) and how to compensate for it. We should also consider what the faintest star we could detect would be, looking at the point spread function of our telescope. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]

Worth a try to get some practice in. * CCD at -15oC * Aligned to capella - very high in sky. * Went down from 46 to 37 DE to theta_aur as capella saturates the camera. * Take subframes to practice focussing. Recorded 400 frames of theat_aur for analysis later. SNR is good as super bright. Peak around 30000 ADU. Jumps around A LOT so will have to align by centroid. Then can have a look at PSF. * Exposure 0.1s * 300 exposures recorded in 10m12s * 400 exposures recorded in 13m37s *Sat bhatinov mask carefully on front of scope. Recorded 50 images with same setup as before. Not so clear. * Exposure 0.5s * Not so clear. Pattern seems very small indeed on CCD compared to internet images. Collimation is definitely poor and its windy so don't expect it to be great. Anyway, reasonably good in focus. * Having a look at the Pleiades. Too extended to see anything nice and certainly with the seeing. The stars are very bright and the nebulosity not so, so quite hard to observe under these conditions. * Imaged Andromeda ok. 30s exposures. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]] * Theta Aur with Bhatinov mask:

This was saturated so the lamp was moved back by 5cm which was still saturated, then we moved it back by another 5cm which put the lamp back from the optical fibre by 25cm. This reduced saturation where refocus was done. Seemed to saturate at 50,000 confirming it was brightest peak.

No cloud coverage. Begun observation session with a run down of the procedure to prepare the dome.

*Dome Procedure:*

  • Enter dome

  • Close the hatch to prevent heat rising and entering the dome. The floors beneath are heated which causes a ‘chimney’ like effect if the hatch is left open as the hot air from below will rise up through it. Ideally the scope and dome should remain cool so noise due to thermal fluctuations is kept to a minimum.
  • In the Maxim DL suiteconnect to the telescope. This allows control of the camera for example you can set exposure times and capture images from the program.
  • Enable the CCD cooler in Maxim. This should be done ~1 hour before taking exposures. If you take observations too soon after enabling the cooler you get a ring like effect on your observations around the outer area of the frame. The ring progresses further to the sides of the frame as the CCD cools until it eventually disappears.The set-point of the cooler is set to -10 degrees celcius and the CCD itself fluctuated around this point slightly once the cooler had taken full effect.
  • Untie the ropes that control the shutter of the dome. Pull on ropes to open the shutter of dome, if the shutters do not open with ease, there is a long stick with a metal prod at one end which can be used to manually push the shutters open from near the top of the dome.
  • Once shutter is open, tie the ropes off again to make sure that they are kept out the way of the moving parts of the done which can rotate bothe counter and clock-wise
  • Using the door on side of dome, go outside and do some preliminary naked eye observations to find an interesting object to observe (this is important for aligning the telescope as detailed later on). This allows you to plan roughly where the telescope and open shutter should be pointing to allow unrestricted viewing.
  • Using the dome control unit, align the dome opening with what you want to observe.
  • When finished observing, realign both the dome and telescope to their origional position. Close the dome shutters and tie up the ropes.
To begin making observations you need to align the telescope to a bright object in the sky and then enable tracking. Tracking corrects the position of the telescope relative to the sedereal motion of the stars. This is necessary because the field of view of the telescope is so narrow if it was left stationary, the object you are observing will move out of frame. To align the telescope, the first step is to identify a bright object visible to the naked eye in the nights sky. You can acess the roof from the dome via. the door on the side. Once on the roof you are able to evaluate potential targets. We identified the star Vega (25ly away, 2.1M0, alpha lyrae - the brightest star in the lyra constellation and 5th brighest in the night's sky). The star charts provided in the program stellarium coupled with manual positional measurements allow you to identify the star you are looking at with the naked eye. Once a object in the sky has been chosen, the next step is to align the telescope to enable the activation of tracking.
  • *Telescope Alignment:*
    • Use a high speed on the control paddle (speed button -> 9 is fastest, 1 is slowest on number pad) to crudely align the scope with what you want to observe using the arrow buttons. This can be done roughly by eye by lining up the two bolts on the side of the telescope with what you are looking for.

    • Then use the viewfinder which has a set of crosshairs to align the scope more accurately with the object in the sky. A medium speed setting on the paddle can be used to move the scope with a greater deal of precision.
    • Once the crosshairs are centred on the object you wish to view, take an exposure in the maxim DL suite. Once the image has been taken and downloaded you can adjust the scope to get the object centred in the frame. If you set maxim DL to take continuous ~1s exposures you can get a better sense of the best way to align scope and object.
    • Once the scope is aligned, enable GPS lock. This continuously corrects the scope to account for the rotation of the earth. The field of view of the scope is very narrow causing the object you are observing to move through the frame if the scope remains stationary.
    • Once tracking is enabled, the scope should keep the object you are trying to view in frame automatically.
    • Using the control paddle, tell the telescope which star/object it is currently aligned to
    • With the telescope connected to stellarium which now allows you to control the scope through the program itself. Using the star charts, you can align the scope to stars/objects shown in stelarrium. (Wait for the ‘beep’ if you move the scope in the program. The scope moves quickly at first but then makes finer corrections to ensure the scope is aligned well. The 'beep' occurs once the telescope is properly aligned, it can take some time ~20-30 secs).
    • While repositioning the telescope it is important to be aware of it's orientation with respect to it's base. The telescope is capable of flipping over on itself which can cause the CCD attatchment to collide with the stand. In a situation where this may happen, power down the telescope via the power controls located on its stand immediately.

With the telescope aligned you can control where it is looking via. the stellarium program. Multiple exposures of Vega were taken at different exposure lengths using the Maxim DL program. Using stellarium, the telescope was then trained on the open cluster M-39 in the constellation cyganus (800ly away from earth). Again took multiple exposures. The cluster is composed of a number of stars. Using the star chart in stellarrium the star patterns were compared to that shown in the exposure allowing for individual identification of the stars the cluster is made up of. You have the ability to manually focus the telescope. If it is out of focus the exposures of stars can present as donuts (dark centres with bright outer ring) or they seem flat and blurred at it's edges. The procedue to manually focus the telescope is first to 'unlock' the mechanism. There are two dials, the shorter one can be rotated to unlock the device allowing the second longer dial to be turned focusing the telescope. Last target of the night was the andromeda galaxy known as M-31 (as it is a messier object) and is 2.5x106 ly away from earth and the closest spiral galaxy to the milky way group. This galaxy has a mass ~ 1.5x10^12 M0. 10 exposures were taken one after the other with the intention of eventually using them to form 1 image with considerably less noise. An interesting point to note is that movement of the atmosphere above the telescope can cause exposures to shift in and out of focus. This was made evident as during continuous exposures of M-39, the stars were alternating between being in focus and out of focus. The exposures taken during the night of observation are attached to this post. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]] * [[https://twiki.ph.rhul.ac.uk/twiki/pub/Public/LogBookAstronomyEntry0052/20141027_SW_LN_SB.rar][20141027_SW_LN_SB.rar]]: Observation data, corrected path names.

LogBook Entry No.74, Subject: LN DSLR Observation ---------+ Log Book Entry No.74 | Days, Calendar Created: 20 May 2015 23:38:53 | Days, Calendar Last Revised: 20 May 2015 23:38:53 | Person Public.LaurieNevay | Text LN DSLR Observation | ---------+ 2015 05 20 LN DSLR Observation * Trying out DSLR on back of scope * Benefit - easy live video to investigate focussing, wide field of view ---------++ 20:30 start * Dismounted SBIG camera (in case) * Canon DSLR bayonet adapter + BADER 2" - T/2 Nosepiece on back of micro-focuser * Observed Moon, Venus & Jupiter during twilight ~ 21:40 * Aligned & synchronised to artturus star to the south as visible to the naked eye * image of M3 globular cluster ~ magnitude 6 - can make out ok in photos but still blue sky background as still slightly light * 2155 * Trial of Deep sky object - still lightish but will keep iterating over objects * Bodes Nebula mag 6.9 * Of note is that the DSLR is slim enough for a polar flip of the mount. Haven't, but can. * Whirlpool Galaxy * Getting better images but can only really see core of galaxy - still to much sky glow From images of a single bright star or say of Jupiter and it's moons, you can see what appears to be both coma and chromatic aberration. The edges of non-point like objects have an orange tinge on one side and a blueish tinge on the other. Jupiter is relatively low just now so there is a strong affect from the atmosphere / imaging but still Jupiter had an asymmetric tinge. The moons were also quite distorted. Although the 'live view' gives you some indication, it simulates the exposure settings and can distort the image a little. Best to take images directly and zoom in to compare. Not too different from live view though. * Telescope likely needs collimation, but the trouble is finding a good enough night for to be able to observe any improvement. Sky much darker now. While no clouds around, there is a bit of haze - can't see huge multitude of stars. * Starting at 3845 images of great cluster in hercules. Finish at 22:20 __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]

Please edit and put your text etc. here Start time: 17:30 End time: 19:30 The DMK camera was fixed to a tripod and pointed at the moon. Run1: Gain set to 180 and images were recorded of the moon at a frame rate of 7.5 frames per second. The algorithm left the exposure setting on 1 as the image was not over or under exposed on this setting. Run2: Gain was increased to 1023. The images were over exposed and the algorithm accounted for this by changing the exposure setting in increments of 1. It was noted that this was very slow to respond to large and sudden changes in conditions. Run3: The code was modified such that the amount the algorithm changed the exposure setting depended on the number of pixels that were saturated. This massively decreased the time the algorithm took to find the correct exposure setting. See screen shot. Images were also taken of Orion's Nebula, see image file names for parameter settings. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]

Lens_focal_length.png ---------+ testing intensity * tested the intensity at reflection and transmission, with diffuser and tissue in front of laser, tissue made intensity vary substantially so averaged over five frames, the reflection intensity was found to be 3% of the transmission intensity, however there could be problems with focus and alignment at the refection, need better analysis of this. * [[https://twiki.ph.rhul.ac.uk/twiki/pub/Public/LogBookAstronomyEntry0103/Intensity_test.zip][Intensity_test.zip]]: Intensity_test.zip __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]

This range was chosen as in the above focus plots, this is where the intensity flattens. * For each of these the position of the laser of the FireWire camera was plotted against the total intensity of the fibers. * The aim was that the focal length which gives the smallest width of a spectral line is the correct focus. * The plot below shows the intensity plot for each of the focal lengths, and the widths of the line. ScansFull.png * This shows the widths does not change much in that range, this could be due to the fact that the focus is smaller than the size of the optical fiber, therefore, the integrated amplitude will remain the same in this range. * Therefore, by selecting a single fiber to integrate the intensity over, it should be possible to find focus. * The below plot shows the same results for a single fiber ScansSingle.png * This shows that the width of the line drops in the range of 252-256 mm . * by fitting a Gaussian function to both the image on the firewire camera and the plots above, the widths could be plotted against the focal length for both.
Fiber_Camera_scan.png * Each of these were then fit with a hyperbola function,
 \begin{equation} f(x; \mu,a,b) = a\sqrt{1+((x-\mu)^{2} / b^{2})} \end{equation}<br />

use DSLR to take white images to look at the natural vignetting effects of the camera, took many exposure times so to get an unsaturated image. Need to process these to get a pixel vs intensity curve to show that the fractional ratio of intensity does not depend on exposure. Also look at different colour channels and create a plot to show all 3
Then set up the telescope so as to record data, fit with sun filters and imaging source camera. Using ICcapture software.
Use shadow of the telescope to align, and adjust further with finder scope.
set telescope to the west of the sun to see it passing through the window, takes around 1min to fully pass no data recorded
Use DSLR to take images of the sun, lowering the exposure times to find an unsaturated image. Use circle finder code to analyse the intensity array across a diameter of the sun. Attached Text files show the image numbers on the DSLR for varying exposure times ISO=100 for targets of the sun then a white light source evenly lit for investigating the vignetting effect.

We took ten images in each filter with exposure time 10s. And we took ten images in each of the green and blue filters with exposure time 40s. We switched to camera 2, a wide view that could take an image of the whole cluster. The image is inverted in camera 2. We took 20 images with exposure time 0.4s with no filter.

Logbook for PH3010 Solar limb darkening mini-project, initial setup meeting Present: DB, MA, JC, HS Order of tasks for observation of the sun: 1) DO NOT STARE DIRECTLY AT SUN. DO NOT POINT UNPROTECTED TELESCOPE AT SUN 2) Go outside dome and check that sun will not be obscured by the tree, wind thingy. If it will be, will have to wait before able to take images of sun 3) Check solar filters are not damaged. Fit solar filters to main scope (and if using finder scope, fit solar filter to that). Fit CCTV lens to camera, camera to filters, filters to telescope. 4) Open dome, move opening so that allows shadow of telescope to be seen on dome wall 5) Use the shadow of the top scope (the one secured by two sets of three prongs) to align the telescope with the sun. When the shadows from both sets of prongs overlap, the telescope is (roughly) aligned with the sun 6) If using finder scope, use to target edge of sun. 7) Use IC Capture program to view camera feed (really need to jam the cable into the back of the camera to get the pc to detect it). In device-properties can control gain and exposure settings 8) Use live camera feed to target edge of sun and focus (unlock and use know on back of telescope) 9) Change declination of telescope and monitor live camera feed. Need to find centre-line of sun. This is when any change in declination results in the suns edge moving out of frame (away from centre, only changing declination in one direction will move it out of frame - the other will move it more in frame) 10) On telescope control setup-targets-terrestrial or astronomical terrestrial will keep telescope at fixed angle, astronomical follows objects through the sky 11) Choose filter to image with. Point telescope as closely as possible to centre of sun and view image histogram. Adjust and exposure until the image is not fully saturating (has a narrow yellow bar - the zero readings - visible) but has as full a range of values as practical. 12) Return telescope to point at edge of sun, in the centre. In IC capture go to the timed capture settings. Choose an appropriate target folder and image capture filenames, set the image type to bmp, turn the 'auto display capture' to off and set an appropriate capture interval and number of captures. Note: Sun subtends an angle of about 0.5 degrees. Previous years have taken 405 seconds worth of images for this project. 13) capture images.

This time determined by timing a test run of the method. * 1 image per second taken for the length of the image set. * Used maximum gain for all image sets. Exposure determined by manually slewing across the sun and trialling different exposures.

Filter stored back in its home. * Telescope returned to 0h0d * NOTE: Minor mix-up with imgae file names. All image sets are stored in the appropriate folders / .zips for the colour filter used, but the some image sets use the wrong colour name in the individual image filenames. Recommend handling image sets carefully / renaming appropriately when used. __Back to:__ [[Public.LogBooks][LogBooks]]
