The accelerators for high power X-ray free-electron laser (FEL) facilities such as the European XFEL and planned LCLS-II X-ray FEL are employing TESLA-type SCRF cavities. Beam propagation off axis in these cavities can result in both short-range and long-range transverse wakefields which can lead to emittance dilution within the micropulses and macropulses, respectively. The Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) facility has a unique configuration of a photocathode RF gun beam injecting two TESLA-type single cavities (CC1 and CC2) in series prior to the cryomodule. To investigate short-range wakefield effects, we used a vertical corrector between these two cavities to steer the beam off axis at an angle into CC2. A Hamamatsu synchroscan streak camera viewing a downstream OTR screen provided an image of y-t effects within the micropulses with resolutions of ~10-micron spatial and 2-ps temporal. At 500 pC/b, 50 b, and 4 mrad off-axis steering, we observed an ~100-micron head-tail centroid shift in the streak camera image. This centroid shift is consistent with a calculated short-range wakefield effect. Additional results for kick-angle compensation will be presented.
