Finding optimal grating placement

  • Maxim DL 5, APT User
  • Cooled camera to -10C
  • He lamp
  • For towards with centred grating, brightest line chosen at 4.8mm
  • For away with centred grating, brightest line chosen at 4.9mm
  • Blaze arrow towards camera focused at 21.69mm and 3.21mm
  • Best position is for blaze arrow pointed at camera, with an offset to the left of a couple of mm
  • Glued in position

  • Focus distance scan
  • Rotation at 3.5mm when doing focus scan
  • Focus rotation angle scan
  • Focus length at 21.69mm when doing rotation scan
