- During the week, correct grating position was found and grating was stuck down
- Sigma of the Gaussian fit to the peak as a function of the lens-camera distance:

- Hyperbolic function used:

- Best guess values used are a = 1, b = 4, μ = 21
- Lowest value of σ is 2.72

- Sigma of the Gaussian fit to the peak as a function of the camera rotation:

- Cosine function used:

- Best guess values used are a = 1, b = 4, μ = 1
- Lowest value of σ is 3.49

- Cutoff value = 0.02
- Size of xrange has to be greater than 2
- The length of adjacent value considered = 3

- Plot of normalised Vega spectrum with its normalised second derivative:

- Vega spectrum with its peak located:
