Title: Update and verify 4mAPS Look Up Tables at both foci.

Abstract: We will lose the capacity to investigate 4mAPS performance using on axis wavefronts with the installation of DESI. We are engaged in a program to update, verify, and track stability of the 4mAPS LUTs at both foci between now and 2017B. A purpose-built 4m Prime Focus Wavefront Camera is being assembled for the Prime focus measurements. These establish corrections other than tilt. Tilt correction is determined at Cass focus and applied by tilting the f/8 secondary.

Program Type: TE

Scheduled Nights:
Run 1 (2015B):  KP-4m/VIS -- 3n on Oct 20 - Oct 22 2015
