  1. 6 DoF rigid body misalignment of L1, L2, L3, and the Filters due to fabrication and installation errors.
  2. 6 DoF rigid body displacements of L1, L2, L3, and the Filters as a function of
    1. zenith angle and camera rotation angle
    2. camera soak temperature
  3. L1, L2, L3, and Filter figuring errors (constant shape errors due to fabrication)
  4. L1,L2,L3, and Filter gravitational shape errors as a function of 
    1. zenith angle and camera rotation angle (seem to be negligible)
    2. camera soak temperature
  5. Overall detector plane 6 DoF rigid body misalignment and displacement due to
    1. fabrication and installation errors (seem to be negligible)
    2. gravitational effects as a function of zenith angle (seem to be negligible)
    3. gravitational effects as a function of camera rotation angle
    4. thermal effects (detector plane thermal motions)
  6. Overall detector shape errors due to
    1. gravitational effects as a function of zenith angle (seem to be negligible)
    2. gravitational effects as a function of camera rotation angle
    3. thermal effects (detector plane thermal motions)
  7. Rafts 6 DoF rigid body misalignment and displacements due to
    1. fabrication and installation errors (sensor profile/height and raft mounting z-position repeatability, albeit current estimates for the later one seem to be small)
    2. gravitational effect as a function of zenith angle (seems to be negligible)
    3. thermal effects (seem to be negligible)
  8. Raft shape errors due to
    1. fabrication/polishing errors (seem to be negligible)
    2. gravitational effect as a function of zenith angle (seems to be negligible)
    3. thermal effects (sensor package distortion due to cool down)
  9. PSF” broadening due to charge diffusion and CTE in the CCD and their idiosyncrasies 
  10. Internal thermal seeing in the form of long exposure (15 seconds) OPD or PSF, as the function of zenith angle
  11. Temperature and temperature distribution histories and/or statistics for the air inside the camera, as well as for the various components of the system: structure and glass.
  12. 6 DoF rigid body displacements and shape distortions of L1, L2, L3, and the Filters due to uneven temperature distributions.
