Finishing an observation

At the end of an observation, the antenna should return to stow and eRemoteControl will bring up a checklist to run through. Here are some notes on the checklist:

If it was an IVS experiment, process logs, comment on the experiment and and send the end of experiment e-mail:

Unless there is another experiment to follow shortly, exit from the Field System by typing the following command in the eRemoteControl operator input window NOTE: Do not do this for hobart the 26m PCFS!:


Exit the log monitor program.

If Yarragadee is observing (and is not following on), email the operator to let him know the observation is finished and the telescope has gone to stow at

Note: it is no longer necessary to reboot PCFS computers at the end of experiments. Do not turn off ops8 either!

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 experiment
