=> The first time in SALT history we did not align mirror this evening because new SAMS (active mirror support system) is working! And mirror is in brilliant shape after it was aligned 24h ago!

=> And mirror is in brilliant shape in the morning - after it was aligned 34h ago!

=> Good night with high humidity, but very stable conditions and very good seeing during the whole night.
