Today Hans was able to operate the front shutter and the front iris using LabView. The licensing problem seems to have been cleared up (it seems to have been a typo in a form somewhere – perhaps it happened at MLO, or later at DMI). The CCD camera and the Magma no longer are listed with ‘yellow triangles’ in the system – we have yet to plug it in and see it operate.

Next steps are to use same methods to get all devices running – Engineeering mode seems to be dead somehow, but all the ‘sub VIs’ are there and so far we have gotten the front shutter and iris VIs to work – can slew telescope from sub VI also.
