Subject: ETMX GigE side view at 50 deg 

 Telescope front lens to wall distance 25 cm,  GigE camera lenght 6 cm and cat6 cable 2cm

 Atm3,   Existing short camera  can has 16cm  lenght to lexan guard on viewport. Available 2" od periscope tube lenght is 8cm. The one in use 16 cm long.

             Note: we can fabricate a lite cover with tube that would accomodate longer telescope.

             Can we calibrate the AR coated M5018-SW and compare it's performance agains the 2" periscope

             Look at the Edmond Optics 3" od camera lens with AR

Atm1,   Now I can see dust. This is much better. The focus is not right yet.

Atm2,   Chamber viewport wiped and image refocused. Actually I was focusing on the dust.

We don't really have to calibrate the lens, just the CCD, which we've done. It's more about knowing the true aperture size to know how much solid angle you're capturing to infer the total amount of scatter. For our custom lens tubes this is the ID of the retaining ring.

The Edmund Optics lens tube looks tempting, but itcomes at a price. Thorlabs sells lens tubes that offer a more flexibility than what we have right now, so I bought a few different ones, and also more 150mm 2" lenses. This will allow for more compact solutions and offer some in-situ focusing ability that doesn't require detaching the lens tube like now. Should be here in a couple of days, then we'll be able to enclose the GigE camera in the viewport can with a similar field of view we have now.

I also bought a collimation package for the AS port fiber stuff so we can move ahead with the ringdown measurements and also mode spectroscopy.
