All the mass estimates for the clusters are now in basic agreement. The photoz fix brought up the lensing masses and they now agree with the dynamical and other masses. What I like is that we didn't try to make them agree, but bugs were found along the way that changed the answer; we would have fixed the bugs even if they lowered the masses.

Analysis on the ICL stuff is beginning in earnest now; Tim is looking at the outputs and I expect he will generate some science soon. If I get a chance I'll also look into it. I'm interested in getting the total optical light in the system for comparison with the total mass from lensing, both in the relative amount and relative distribution within the clusters.
