Dutch term or phrase: laser scoop
I am currently working on a technical translation (see also other KudoZ questions), and am struggling with the above term (concerning laser units).

I have tried to provide as much context as possible:

"Sluit het Angle tool, voor de af te regelen laser, aan op het Quadcell read out tool (ingang 3 of 4). Schakel de Laserdrive, van de af te regelen laser, in op 100% duty cycle en selecteer de juiste ingang op het read out tool. Druk nu op X Deflection en Trigger X source om de spot te krijgen. Daarna de scoop grounden.Regel de positie van de laser af met de rechte wrikpen totdat de stip op de scoop binnen 20 mV van de nul positie staat (let op dat de spot alle kwadranten van de scoop kan bereiken).

I found very few references (either Kluwer or Google), so all suggestions are welcome!

KudoZ points will be awarded within 72 hours.

Many thanks,

Anne

Or 'laser scope', although this can be confused with laser telescopic sights on firearms.

Notes to answerer
Asker: You're right Ken - I got a bit too creative there! I added the "laser" bit in the heading to provide a bit more context. Apologies for the confusion!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Ken Cox: Just 'oscilloscope' or 'scope' in this case. It's not a laser oscilloscope (Anne got a bit too creative here), but instead an oscilloscope used in the procedure. 'Scope' and 'scoop' (what do you call that? a phonetic translation?) are both slang..
