Operation of the MagAO-X instrumentΒΆ

The MagAO-X instrument has (at last count) several thousand controllable degrees of freedom, three computers, and dozens of processes. To manage that complexity, we have the guides and tools detailed herein.

Good starting points include the startup guide and the troubleshooting guide. Useful tools include xctrl, cursesINDI, and logdump.

Viewing camera output and DM input (really, any shared memory image) uses rtimv, which is documented in its own User Guide.
