Starts an exposure on a specified detector.
Format: EXPOSE <detectorname> <exposuretime>
Example: EXPOSE IPCS 1000
Synonym: EI ( EXPOSE IPCS)
Comments: If the previous exposure has not been kept EXPOSE will prompt the user to do this, but EXPOSE will store the data only in the DMS, not in a disc file. EXPOSE IPCS does not open the shutter at the start of the exposure, nor close it at the end; this must be done explicitly.
