Manual for UltraDAS.
rsrun performs a sequence of exposures for rapid spectroscopy on
the camera, reads them out and saves the data in a FITS file containing
the exposures in a sequence of FITS extensions. The file is passed to the
archiving and logging facilities. The observation is assumed to be a science
exposure (c.f. runs made by the dark
commands. The command multrsrun makes a series of rsruns.
A title may be given for the observation: the title appears as the datum
of the OBJECT keyword in the FITS headers and as the target name
in the observing log. If no title is given, the system attempts to read
the target name from the TCS: this makes the value for the OBJECT
keyword the same as that for the CAT-NAME keyword. If the TCS does
not answer, then the title defaults to "(object not named)".
rsrun [<camera>|<instrument>] <number-of-exposures> <exposure-time> ["<title>"]
multrsrun [<camera>|<instrument>] <n-obs> <number-of-exposures> <exposure-time>
where number-of-exposures is the required number of exposures in
the sequence, exp-time is in seconds and n-obs is the number
of cycles in a multrsrun. The title-string must be enclosed in double
rsrun red 127 1 "rapid spectroscopy run"
performs a series of 127 one second integrations.
Notes and caveats:
The rsrun command is only available in observing systems later than S10-1.
The S10-1 command driftrun is renamed to rsrun in later observing systems.
The rsrun command is currently only available for use with the TEK4
camera on ISIS RED. It is designed for use with windows of approximately
1100 x 35 (e.g. [1:1100,205:240]).
The shutter is opened at the start of the rsrun, and remains open until
the rsrun sequence is completed.
