Another histogram.  This one allows the MMT mirror positions to move, the MMT incident angle for both curved optics to change, and the MC waist size and position to change.  The error quoted for the MC waist size measurement from 2010

was +\- 0.01mm, and the MC waist position was +\- 28mm.  

This histogram is showing that we're pretty sensitive to the MC waist measurement, which is used to define the beam.  We can be up to ~2% off in our ideal mode matching to the arms if we're using the incorrect initial beam for the telescope design.
