The telescope points sufficently well that object acquisition for TAURUS imaging observations is extremely straightforward. As long as the object coordinates have been typed in correctly, it is very unlikely that the object will be far from the field centre. Thus it is not worth wasting observing time using the TV to verify that the right field is being observed. If you disagree with this statement, or for some reason are unhappy with your coordinates, then it is possible to view the field using the acquisition TV in the A&G unti; type AGMIRROR ACQCOMP to select the acquisition mirror, and once you're happy, type AGMIRROR OUT to get rid of it again.
