This week we finished the optical alignment in the optical lab. We also mounted the NAS on the tower as a test. Then we pulled the NAS off the tower and mounted all the optics into the the NAS for the first time. Then we aligned the flowerpot (calibration point source) to the NAS and the board to the the flowerpot. See photos below
