16" UMD tune up

Postby Mark G » Thu Mar 27, 2008 8:11 pm

Have we picked a time/day to remove the 16" from the pier & attempt the repair? I have Saturday afternoon after 3 pm available.

I have run up against a challenging week. I could be available earlier on Fri, but not after 3pm.

Hi all,

Friday's out because of the weather. We need a bright dry day. The observatory is too dark to "operate" in if we can't open the dome. Saturday might work. But not too early. We'll have to see how the weather plays out.

Let's shoot for Saturday afternoon. I'll get there around 2, open the observatory up, and run the scope drive. Once help arrives we can proceed with dismounting the scope and opening the base.

George - I can give you a ride if you're available.
