Photo 1. Looking down upon the primary focus unit (PFU). The hexagonal structure in the center is the top of the SuprimeCam. Cause of the leak is rightly due to the asynchronization of the cable wrap in the periphery of the PFU with respect to the SuprimeCam on the instrument rotator.


Photo 2. Close-up of the cable and hose connectors. Deformation and/or damages are seen where the cables/hoses attached.

Connector board
