Finishing an observation

At the end of an observation, the antenna should return to stow and there should be a final checklist to run through. Here are some notes on the checklist:

If it was an IVS experiment, process logs, comment on the experiment and and send the end of experiment e-mail:

After double-checking that the telescopes are stowed, use terminate to exit yhe Field System unless there is another experiment to follow shortly.

Exit the log monitor program.

Note: it is no longer necessary to reboot PCFS computers at the end of experiments. Do not turn off ops8 either!

If another experiment follows this one, go to the next step: Following on with another experiment
