This is a slightly faster method to setup the telescopes using a variety of scripts developed by the observers and operations staff over the years. The procedure listed below hasn't undergone much testing and as a result should only be used if you are experienced in setting up the telescopes the old way.
ifa=1,agc,1 ifb=4,agc,4 ifc=2,agc,2 ifd=2,agc,2 dbbcform=geo
For APSG, OHIG, AOV and T2 experiments they should be:
ifa=1,agc,1 ifb=4,agc,1 ifc=2,agc,2 ifd=2,agc,2 dbbcform=geo

dim not found or something similar. This is okay as it just means that the process wasn't running when the EndDim command was issued. If the script doesnt break out of a loop, the mk5 hasnt been setup properly.
