Day 27, November 20, 2012 -- Aligned and ready

The big effort today was finishing the alignment of the mirror mounts. This took a little longer than anticipated because the required distances for the primary mirror hexapod were a fair bit different than they had been previously. Kyle and Shaul went over all the numbers in the afternoon and we are convinced that everything is hunky-dory, so we are going to go ahead and mount mirrors tomorrow.

Elsewhere in the high bay, BTS mylarization continued, Matt and Franky worked on routing and securing the detector readout cable dryer hoses, and Andrei worked on crunching some sun sensor calibration data.
