Instrument set-up

A general database system has been set-up with information on all optical elements that are used at the NOT. This includes the physical properties and a description of where every optical element may be located. Likewise, current wheel contents for the different instrument are stored in the database.

The instrument setup facilities used by NOT staff to configure the instrument wheel content has been rewritten, now based on this optical element database. Having all elements defined centrally allows for easy consistency checks and simple administration.
