The Optical Televiewer stores high resolution images of the drill hole wall during CT drilling.  The CT Optical Televiewer was connected with the bottom-hole assembly and stored images down to about 50m below ground level during the live technology demonstration at our Annual Conference.  The images were from inside the upper casing and provided the first field demonstrations the viability of the CT Optical Televiewer.  Based on these first field tests, parameters for the optical televiewer are being refined.
