We are on our first night of a four night block to continue testing LBTI, and taking single aperture science observations. Due to clouds and high winds, we have been unable to open.
So, we developed a procedure to align the interferometer to the telescope with the dome closed. The image below shows the two LBT pupils imaged in LMIRCam, centered in the pupils of the LBTI beamcombiner. The cold dome provides a temperature contrast at 4.8 microns, that makes it appear darker than the steel structure of the telescope.
Software servers have now mostly been integrated to the web interface. We have been testing these and other software changes, all in an attempt to keep ourself busy until the sky clears.
