The week of July 20

This week the visiting engineers from Austin aligned the Video Alignment Telescope (VAT) to the corrector optics and then aligned the corrector to the the center of the primary mirror. This sets our axis for making all trajectories. We will now set the distance from the primary to the VAT. Work will continue over the weekend and we will then turn the VAT around and measure the angle from the VAT up to the CCAS instrument. This last will be night work. So far things are progressing on schedule.
