Disassembly, Relocation and Re-Assembly & Alignment -- October 6 - 11, 2002

The Disassembly, Relocation and Re-Assembly & Alignment was completed as planned and in quick time with no problems. Furthermore as a result of the realignment, the instrument is possibly in better shape than prior to the move.
During alignment tests the shutter was noticed to be malfunctioning. A modification to the release cable by A.Kaufer remedied the problem.
