8.7 Acquisition Mode
Images obtained using the coronagraph in Camera 2 may be taken using any of the detector read-out modes. An ACQ mode observation performs an autonomous on-board acquisition (Mode-2 Acquisition) for subsequent coronagraph images. This mode is described in detail in Chapter 5 (Coronagraphy).
