Short DescriptionSearches ALFOSC and FASU wheels for optical elements. See the ALFOSC Sequencer Command and Script Reference for a description of the output and a list of all possible <flags>.
Long DescriptionSearches ALFOSC and FASU wheels for optical elements. Returns the wheel (fi, fa, fb, ap, gr), the position (integer number) and the optical element. Optional output (with flag -a) returns also the alignment tag (Y/N). Optional output (with flag -p) returns the slit position (x and y). This script can also be used to turn the corresponding wheel(s) to searched position(s) with optional flag -m. Note that this moves only the corresponding wheels, leaving other wheels as they were. Flag options:
  • -g <grism>
    Searches the grism and the filter wheel with given <grism> e.g. "#4"
  • -s <sslit>
    Searches the aperture wheel with given <slit> e.g. 0.75
  • -f <filterID>
    Searches the filter, FASUa and FASUb wheels with filter <filterID> e.g. 76
  • -m
    Turns the wheel(s) so that the searched optical element(s) is in the light beam
  • -d <wheel>
    Displays the content of the wheel, <wheel> is the name of the wheel: filter/fasua/fasub/grism/slit (Cannot be used with flags -s/-g/-f)
  • -a
    Prints out the alignment tag (Y/N) in the output
  • -p
    Prints out the the slit position (x, y) in the output
  • -o
    Prints out the 'Open' positions for every wheel. (Cannot be used with flags -s/-g/-f)
  • -h
    Prints out help
Usage example:
  alfosc.optics -f 76 -g "#4" -s 0.75 -a -p
Returns:
  fi 4 "R_Bes 650_130"
  gr 1 Y "Grism_#4"
  ap 0 Y 1050 1008.79 "Slit_0.75""
