This procedure acquires a 3D datacube, using parameters defined by FP_SETUP.

In the case of the IPCS, the procedure first sets up TAURUS, the detector and the DMS for the exposure. TAURUS is slaved to the IPCS. The observer is asked to specify the total integration time. The observer is then asked whether the shutter should be opened, then asked to check that the intensity level is OK, and then asked if the exposure should be started.

At the end of an exposure, type SLAVEOFF to release TAURUS from the IPCS, the IPC to close the shutter and KEEP IPCS to keep the data. It may take several minutes to keep the data.
