Good to go!

In spite of significant weather loss during the engineering nights scheduled for the AdSec-DX checkout, we were able to check the system out in all four binning modes and the system showed reliability and stability. 

From the tests made, the system is deemed in a reliable enough state for the upcoming PISCES run, scheduled for 7 nights (Oct 8 to 15).

A pre-run engineering night scheduled for PISCES checkout will allow for more tests of the secondary mirror.

Note: This blog is likely to come to an end soon!
