ETMY beam centering
I forgot to put this in the elog.
Last Sunday night, I centered the beam on the ETMY because it was too low.
To do so, I wrote scripts (beamCenterETMY-P and beamCenterETMY-Y) to continuously align the Y-arm while I'm moving the beam on the end QPD.
These scripts will continuously do the dithering servo and QPD centering in one direction (pitch for beamCenterETMY-P, yaw for the other).
So if you move the steering mirror in front of the end QPD, the servo will eventually move the beam spot on the ETM.
I centered the beam just by looking at the camera image.
No coupling measurements from Pitch/Yaw to length was done.
