End of First Michelle Engineering Run on Gemini

13 Mar 2003

Michelle is on Gemini and will have one final night of alignment tests on March 17, prior to being removed from the telescope for about three months. During that period it is expected that the dead array channel will be revived and the internal optical alignment will be adjusted/improved. In addition, there will be work done at the telescope to increase the cooling efficiency and thereby reduce the detector temperature.
