Subject: BS table oplev re-arranged 

[Sendhil, Yuta]

After aligning IFO and putting the access connector on, we also centered IPANG/IPPOS and all oplevs (except SRM).
To avoid clipping of PRM/BS oplevs, we re-arranged oplev steering mirrors on BS table.

What we did:
  1. Checked IPANG comes out unclipped after putting on the access connector.
  2. Centered IPANG on its QPD.
  3. Checked oplevs beams for ITMX/ITMY centered on in-vac mirrors, and centered them on their QPDs.
  4. Checked IPPOS beam is centered on the mirrors inside BS chamber, and centered IPPOS on its QPD.
  5. Tweaked oplev mirrors on BS chamber to make PRM/BS oplev beam unclipped and centered on mirrors, and centered them on their QPDs. To avoid clipping of oplev beams in BS table, we re-arranged oplev steering mirrors on BS table (outside the vaccum).


Current status:
  QPD values, IFO_ALIGN/MC_ALIGN screens, OSEM values attached.

  - IR incident beam and IFO aligned
  - X/Y end green coming out to PSL table (in higher order modes)
  - IPANG/IPPOS available
  - All oplevs available
  - AS/REFL/POP cameras ready
  - access connector, ETMX/ETMY heavy doors on
  - ITMX/ITMX/BS heavy doors are not on
  - AS/REFL/POP PDs not centered
  - POX/POY/TRX/TRY not aligned
  - AS beam coming out of the OMC chamber low by ~ 1 beam diameter (my bad)


Tomorrow:
  - Align AS/REFL/POP PD and lock PRMI
  - Take pictures of ITMX/ITMY/BS stacks
  - Put heavy doors on ITMX/ITMY/BS chambers
  - Start pumping down
