Dx Lgsw cable tray modification

We discovered that the new cable tray installed in September would collide both with the LGSW camera and board so we removed the last segment of the tray and we cut away about 20cm of lenght.

The setup, craning and clamping of the LGSW took us about 2 hours.

We attached to the crane hook 4 ropes 20ft long. On the camera side we directly attached the rope to the gray LGSW shackles (not good because the ropes could not slide inside the shackles). On the PatCams side we used 2 more shackles to increase the ropes lenght and balance the LGSW (an orange shackle of 8cm and a red shackle of 12cm). We had also to put some bumpers between the shackles and the LGSW cover.
