Setup is working

Friday's test flight led us to dismount a part of our setup so we could work on it over the weekend. At Sunday night 1:00 we finally had everything working. Cameras are nicely aligned and we can pick up the spectra of the lights acros the street. The grating is now neatly attached to the lens of one of our cameras. This camera is tilted upwards such that we can observe high resolution spectra.

Tomorrow the tarmac calibrations will take place. Before those tests we will need to reinstall all equipement we took out back into the airplane. It will be an exciting day!
