Takes an exposure and transfers the data into the Detector Memory System for inspection, but not to the system computer.

Format: GLANCE <channel> <obstype> <time>

Channel: The name of the CCD data acquisition channel to be used.

Time: The exposure time in seconds

Obstype: The observation type. Valid observation types are ARC, BIAS, DARK, FLAT, and TARGET.

Examples : GLANCE RED ARC 5

Comments: This command is intended for a quick--look at the data, to verify for example that the intensity level is as expected before carrying out a proper exposure. The data will be lost when the next exposure is carried out on the same data acquisition channel. To save the data, use the KEEP command.
