The Son Of X-Shooter (SOXS) is the new two-channel (UV-VIS and NIR) spectrograph and imaging capabilities, covering wavelength regimes from 350 nm to 2000nm for the ESO NTT at La Silla. SOXS is optimized for the classification and follow-up of transient events. SOXS consortium has a relatively large geographic spread, and therefore the AIV of this medium-class instrument follows a modular approach. Each of the five main sub-systems of SOXS, namely the Common Path, the Calibration Unit, the Acquisition Camera, UV-VIS Spectrograph, and the NIR Spectrograph, are undergoing internal alignment and testing in the respective consortium institutes. INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova delivers the Common Path (CP) sub-system, which is the backbone of the entire instrument. We report the Common Path internal alignment starting from the assembly of the individual components to the final testing of the optical quality and the efficiency of the complete sub-system.
