Notes and Changes:
LIGO-T1300862-v1 are a set of pictures from some trials with air knife and air nozzle. We did a drag wipe and then took a "clean" picture, then got it dusty with some artificial dust, and then blew it off with one of three different methods. I guess, the clean value should be subtracted from each of the dirty and blown-off conditions. The Silvent nozzle, air knife, and Top Gun were all filtered with Ingersol Rand input air filters.
