This is an archive of those documents which describe tricks, bugs and solutions to several problems that various observers have encountered. The documents are organized chronologically, and no effort is made to eliminate out-of-date information. Please check a document's date to determine whether the information in it still applies. If you are looking for a subsystem manual please go to Instrument Subsystems.
We would like to ask all observers to take note of any useful information during their runs and to make it available to us in the form of a simple text file, so that it can be added to this page. In this way we can immediately provide useful information to the next observers. Beginning in 2005 we are keeping notes on many of the little problems that come up which are of interest to observers with limited experience on the system and which may not be well documented elsewhere.
