Title: Test and fine-tune MPK's new guiding modes

Abstract: Test and fine-tune MPK's new guiding modes (the P/I filter and the autoguider). Develop and test Mayall's new pointing camera. The new camera and lens should arrive in November. Off-the-telescope tests should be done by the end of December 2016. By then the new mount should be ready to install the camera on Mayall. Once the camera has been installed, several sessions of engineering time will be needed for testing and software development. New pointing maps will be required, some of which will involve the new pointing camera. Reserving these nights for T&E during the MzLS observing blocks is hereby requested - if any of the time requested here is not required, it can be offered later to bright-time science programmes, or other T&E requirements.
