Title: Check/revise 4mAPS Look Up Tables at both foci

Abstract: Use wavefront curvature sensing to update the 4mAPS LUTs at both foci. Prime must be done first, since the Prime LUT is the starting point for Cass corrections, which are mostly in secondary tilt for coma. Prime testing will use a custom curvature sensing camera + defocus mechanism that must be installed in place of Mosaic. We expect that the camera will be new, the system in beta test, and good results are essential to proceed with Run 2; hence the request for 3 nights as a weather/equipment cushion. UPDATE - Only the performance checkout of the custom camera will be possible in 15A. Cass tests will use the curvature sensing system incorporated into the Rotator-Guider, so that must be installed.
