Engineering terminals

In addition to the DMS and the Autoguider terminals, which are located on the control desk, there are three other terminals which allow access to various subsystems. These are located on a table behind the data reduction vaxstation (LPVS3), and close to the door which leads to the dome area. One of the three terminals is a network monitor which should only be used by La Palma technical staff. Use of the other terminals is normally restricted to technical staff and support astronomers, and with the increasing reliability of the VAX control system, should occur only rarely.
