- We had a successful evening getting VCAM and BCAM parfocal. The VI stage was
moved back on dummy RSS. There was no Z adjustment needed for the VI stage. We
found that with VCAM in focus we could get BCAM focused using the FLI focus on
BCAM. Some further tests, which probably needs verification, showed that
the VCAM focus is fairly close to the theoretical track and not much
telescope focus offset is needed to get VCAM into focus.

- The weather conditions did not allow us to do more observations to
further check our initial findings.
