    • pointing still limits acquisition and requires astrometry.net interaction. Consuming ~40s of overhead per science target.

Completed Items:

  • IFU optics stabilized by clamp that replaces spring
  • Calibration Lamps: now fully automated
  • DRP wavelengths: calibrated using Xe, Cd, and Hg arc observations
  • RC photometry: automated pipeline completed
  • Instrument Control: robotically operated
  • Data Reduction: photometry is completely automated, spectroscopy required minimal interaction
