First light test: a single camera looking towards the zenith

Three trunks, put just outside the lab. The hexapod has been put onto these trunks during the first light tests. We involved a bubble level in order to adjust the hexapod nearly in a horizontal attitude. This yields an alignment within a precision of a degree or so. Setup is completed. All of the neccessary control and data acquistion electronics are mounted within the ``stomach'' of the hexapod, only a power and ethernet cable is needed for the full control. Our group, who are involved in the instrumentaiton development (from left to right: A. Pál, A. Jaskó, L. Mészáros, G. Csépány and K. Vida).
