GMOS-S OIWFS out of service

Content owned by ggimeno

UPDATE (Sep 03): the repair work will extend through mid-September. The reason for this is that one of the optical components of the OI probe needs to be re-attached to the pickoff arm after it was found loose. The work will also involve the corresponding optical alignment check.

Due to a mechanical failure, The GMOS-S OIWFS will be out of service at least for the rest of August. A repair plan at the CPO Instrument Lab is being worked on. As a consequence of this situation, GMOS-S will be available only with PWFS2 as guiding option.
