All oplevs need a little realignment, especially ETMY, which had it's lens removed (Rana has a Wall of Shame photo of this, which is why it was removed by him).  Steve will look into this tomorrow, after he starts pumping.

 The shame:


There is no situation in which it is OK to install a mount like this. Steve had installed this flaky and shaky mount to optimize the beam size on the OL QPD.

Everyone in the lab should know better. Putting in something like this is just like sabotage - it creates extra noise in our interferometer in a sneaky way and just makes locking harder. All mounts for anything useful (including QPDs) must have highly rigid mounts. 

Use the example from the PSL relayout: use the 3/4" steel mounts and the wide aluminum bases from Newport. No more art projects using home made mounting crap, Steve.
