Subject: ITMY & MC2 Camera work 

We restored the good state of the ITMY camera and neatened both the MC2 and ITMY camera.

The MC2 camera was driving a triple T jungle into some random cables and spoiling the image. We removed all T's and the MC2 camera now drives only The Matrix.

The ITMY camera was completely unmounted and T'd. So it was misaligned just by the force of gravity acting on its BNC cable. We swapped the lens for a reasonable sized one and remounted it in its can. We then used orange cable ties to secure the power and BNC cable for the MC2 and ITMY cameras so that tugging on the cables doesn't misalign the cameras. This is part of the camera's SOP.

No more driving 50 Ohm cables and T's with video cables, Steve! If you need a portable video, just use a spigot of the Matrix and then you can control it with a web browser.

I also wiped out the D40's memory card after uploading all of the semi-useful files to the Picasa page.
