Periscope problems

Nope, I've sadly not managed to flee Pole for service aboard a submersible.  The periscope for one of the interferometers at ARO, which guides light in from various directions in the sky when it works, is on the blink.  The last day and a half I've been working with guidance from the project staff to get it back online, but it looks like it will probably require another good deal of tomorrow at the least.  It's always interesting what the big problems for the year end up being.  I think I've had fairly good luck so far this summer and winter, but there is plenty of time left for more surprises requiring my attention.
