[Kruthi, Milind]

Today, with Milind's help, I installed the analog camera into the MC2 enclosure [picture attached]; but it is not yet focused. We replaced the bulky angular bracket with a simple one, this saved a lot of space inside and it's easier to align other components now. I'll finish setting it up tomorrow.

Telescope design for MC2:  Instead of using two 3" long stackable lens tubes (SM2L30), we can use one 3" lens tube with an adjustable lens tube (SM2V10), as shown in the picture. This gives a flexibility to change the focal plane distance by 1" and also reduces the overall length of telescope from 9 inches to 6-7 inches. I decided to use two 150mm biconvex lens instead of a combination of 150mm and 250mm lenses, as the former combination results in lower focal plane distance for a given distance between the lenses.

Specifications of current telescope system (for future reference):

Focal length of lenses used  150mm & 150mm
Distance between the lenses 1cm - 2cm (Wasn't able to make more accurate measurement)

With the above telescope, assuming the MC2 mirror to be at a distance of approx 75cm, the focal plane distance will range from 7.9cm to 8.1cm. Using the adjustable lens tube, we can further make the fine adjustment.
