First fringes have been detected on Saturday 21 March but unfortunately not recorded (see news of 21 March 2004). Sunday has been dedicated to some engineering work and we were back to the sky on Monday 22 March 2004. The fringes have been detected on Sirius and this time recorded. The video above displays the raw detector data obtained on Sirius (1.6Mb).
