CHECKLIST

There are a number of complex interactions that take place during a TAURUS Instrument observing run, therefore
operation of  these interactions are vitally IMPORTANT and need extensive testing when TAURUS is scheduled
on the Telescope. Further more when the Observing has completed, a number of actions must be taken to maintain
the current condition of each optical component when the instrument is stored. They may be, removal of optical filters,
aperture masks, the LDSS vph and visitors own ETALONS.

In each case care must be of prime importance.

The following checklist will help you fulfill the main objectives.
The checklist is divided into two sections, the first is

"WHAT TO DO AT THE START OF A TAURUS OBSERVING RUN" and the second
"WHAT TO DO AT THE END OF A TAURUS OBSERVING RUN".

In all cases the actions below should be carried out by technical staff ONLY and ONLY re-instated by technical staff.
This is to avoid possible chances of damage to mechanical and optical and electronic components.
