I came in today to check up on the StripTool and burn the Ubuntu LTS (new CDS OS) DVD. I was pretty excited to see the PRM flashes on Mon1.
I waggled the PRM/BS alignments and got a good contrast MICH and then bright flashes in the PRM that totally overload Mon1's CCD.
Now I can see flashes of some IR junk in the X Arm; its way off on the left edge of the mirror, but there's a beam.
For the short term, we can hook up the IO PZTs to some old EPICS channels (like one of the AUX guys in the LSC area), but eventually it has to get hooked up to the new ASC or ASS. We have to bug Joe to see where this shows up in his master diagram.
**Note: if you get lost sometimes when doing the alignments, remember that you can use time_machine_conlog.
