As PSL-126MOPA_DTEC went up, the power out put went down yesterday
[From Jenne: When we first opened up the MOPA box, the NPRO's cooling fins were HOT. This is a clear sign of something badbadbad. They should be COLD to the touch (cooler than room temp). After jiggling the needle valve, and hearing the water-rushing sounds, the NPRO radiator fins started getting cooler. After ~10min or so, they were once again cool to the touch. Good news. It was a little worrisome however that just after our needle-valve machinations, the DTEC was going down (good), but the HTEMP started to rise again (bad). It wasn't until after Alberto's tinkering that the HTEMP actually started to go down, and the power started to go up. This is probably a lot to do with the fact that these temperature things have a fairly long time constant.
Also, when we first went out to check on things, there was a lot more condensation on the water tubes/connections than I have seen before. On the outside of the MOPA box, at the metal connectors where the water pipes are connected to the box, there was actually a little puddle, ~1cm diameter, of water. Steve didn't seem concerned, and we dried it off. It's probably just more humid than usual today, but it might be something to check up on later.]
