[title] Closing the Tube
[* icon_reminder] From the previous steps, you should have already tested the electronics and motors before closing up the tube.
[* black] You will need to unplug the DB25 from the controller board in order to seat the port endcap easily.
[* black] Place your o-rings on both sides of your endcaps.
[* black] Align the E-Chassis as shown in Fig 1. Plug the DB-25 back into the controller board. Be sure all of your wires are tucked away and there is nothing obscuring a smooth slide down of the tube.
[* icon_note] Now is a good time to clean the tube to ensure your camera gets a clear picture, and to be sure there is no dust or dirt that might interfere with a good o-ring seal.
[* black] Be sure your o- rings are clean and lubricated. Remove the plungers, and slide the e-tube onto the attached electronics. You may need to press down firmly to get the tube onto the cap.
