MELIPAL M2 Unit

In the evening of January 20, the mirror was placed in its protective box and transported to the telescope enclosure. The mechanical structure of MELIPAL was tilted towards the horizon for easy access to the M2-Unit, the electro-mechanical support system for the secondary mirror at the top end.
