2015 Sep 17 — Full assembly

IMG_0918IMG_0910Today I finished putting all the pieces together. The cameras and mounts were locked down to their elevation and azimuth angles. The camera mount plate assembly was placed inside the metal enclosure and cables were run to the control computer. After a few small adjustments to a couple of the mounts, the cameras now have clear un-vignetted views out of the window. The image on the left shows all 16 channels (saturated during the day) on the computer display. This was a big step towards first light.
