Observing Log 11/01/15 0

Observed some pretty pictures of M15 tonight with Erin Aadland and Andy Block. When going through the procedure while setting up the filter wheel we kept getting “Error 1.”  Turned out the internet cable to the filter wheel was unplugged.  Once we fixed that, things went smoothly until the end.  Maxim DL shut down and when we tried to reconnect the telescope, we got an error reading “unable to connect.”  We couldn’t get it to work and since we only had two images left, we manually moved the telescope and called it a night.

Focus: 2840

Temperature: 50F
