UPDATES NOT REQUIRING ACTION
- EOA/MOCAT: With the help of Dave Radosevich, Jim Hannum and John Kerns, the pier was taken to a welder and the bolt slots lengthened to allow the necessary adjustments to polar align it. The 12-inch LX200 is now mounted on the pier in the Mocat observatory, and controlled by the computers in the observatory and the control room. A number of technical problems have been worked out, but the RA wormgear appears to be too tight and is throwing the accuracy of the telescope off.
