All the STANCAM software will now be started - the BIAS programme, a
window showing relevant TCS information
and the postprocessing control. You will notice two new things,
namely an X-terminal in blue colors with the title "STANCAM Seq" and a
log program called the Talker.
Do not close this window.
The X-terminal (also called "seqterm". Use this command to get another
sequencer terminal) is used to type in the sequencer
commands. The Talker is used to watch and control the execution of the
sequencer commands. Also be aware the IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO TYPE ANY
COMMANDS IN THE BIAS "COMMAND" WINDOW.
Wait until the UT clock in the first line in the BIAS Status window
starts to run.
The data will be saved in /data/stancam and will have the
format STph160001.fits, where 'ST' is the image
prefix for STANCAM images, 'ph' is for 2006/August,
'16' is for the date 16
in the month and '0001' is a running number.
