Lauren U. and Erin A. went out to the telescope to observe the exoplanet transit of TrES-3b.  The evening started off well with Dr. Craig having the telescope already connected so we didn’t have to deal with any errors!  The transit started at 9:40 and ended at 10:56. The images look beautiful with a focus of 2853 and a temperature of 59 degrees.  However, when returning the telescope to home the computer froze once again and had to be restarted.
