Darragh O'Donoghue and Lisa Crause along with the IQ team report their exciting results in fixing the IQ problem and 'Saving SALT.' Beyond keeping us all updated throughout the project in addition to her work on the IQ fix, Lisa was very busy with two contributions including information about cleaning the M5 mirror and optical alignment using a Faro arm.
With the Robert Stobie Spectrograph ready to go back onto the telescope, Ken Nordsieck detailed the testing that was required to understand the UV throughput, Anthony Koeslag describes the control system for the instrument, and Janus Brink presented results from his Masters thesis on 'Spectropolarimetry with the SALT RSS' which details the polarimetric capabilities of RSS.
User software was detailed in papers by Christian Hettlage and Steve Crawford. Christian described the PIPT tool that will be used for preparing SALT proposals. I submitted a paper on the PySALT data reduction and analysis tools. David Buckley presented some highlights from the time-resolved observations being done with SALT.
