Finishing an observation

At the end of an observation, the antenna should return to stow. After it has, exit from the Field System, by typing the following command in the oprin window:


Fill in as much of the “After” section of the checklist GUI that you can, then exit it with a “File→Exit”.

Exit the log monitor program.

If Yarragadee is observing, email the operator to let him know the observation is finished and the telescope has gone to stow at

Please power-down the stairwell monitors using the switches under the main desk labelled Screen 1, Screen 2, … when finishing an experiment or after hours to save power.

If another experiment follows this one, go to the next step: following on with another observation.
