The black bag around the JAG

To make sure no stray light enters the camera from the side, the telescope is fitted with a black bag that hangs around the JAG and CCD. The bag is quite heavy; if it is taken off, the telescope has to be rebalanced by observatory staff.

You have to open the bag in order to refill the cryostat; close it afterwards.
