Subject: locking activity : PZT1 is still railing  

Status update on the LSC activity:

 To see how good/bad the beam pointing is, I locked the Y arm with POY11.
Then I ran the ASS servo to automatically correct the alignment of the ITMY and ETMY suspensions and also the beam pointing.
The result is that the PZT1_X is still railing to the negative side.
Due to it the transmitted light from the Y arm is about 0.6 or so which is supposed to be 1 if the beam pointing is perfect.
The EPICS value of PZT1_X is at the minimum of -10 and the ASS servo tried to push it more negative side.
 Tomorrow night I will intentionally introduce offsets in the MC suspensions to avoid the railing.
The goal will be a scan of the incident beam while measuring the recycling gain.
