Engineering first light for the FIF's guider imaging system

Ockert's been busy in the lab getting the optics for the FIF guide probe integrated.  From right to left in the pic below you can see the fold mirror, the system's three lenses & then the small CCD camera (the black tube on the left).

In this view you can see the CCD (off to the right) being reflected in the fold mirror (left).

Next up, it was time to check that the imaging system works...

Very Okkie - any excuse to shoot at a target!

Engineering First Light - Great Stuff  :)
