Installation of the Center Section on the TMA

Full-scale integration of the elevation structure onto the azimuth assembly is in progress; this video shows the central section of the elevation structure being mounted on top of the elevation trunnions. Current and near-term scheduled work on the Telescope Mount Assembly (TMA) includes verification of component fit and function, continued installation of the top end of the telescope, and installation of the electrical and fluid systems. This work is all ramping up to support factory testing near the end of the year.
