Initial Setup

The following procedure describes taking data in STARE and ND_STARE modes, which are the normal modes for WHIRCAM. See § 8 for taking exposures in Shift+Add mode.

First, load a CONFIG appropriate to your planned observing. If you don't do this you may be in an incorrect filter or have an incorrect observing mode selected in the setup phase.
