repaired SBIG 11000

Wow. Repaired Elaine's SBIG 11000 camera.

For some time, she had heard something rattling around inside. To me it sounded like a screw or a piece of hard plastic.

In the end, we discovered that two screws had fallen off shutter mount! I surmised they were not properly torqued and shook loose over time due to vibration. That could have turned into a very bad situation.

I reinstalled each screw with a little bit of blue thread locker.
