Observing Log 2/26/16

Elias Holte, Laura Maixner, and I came out to observe M3.  The night started out with a camera error, where the camera wouldn’t connect to the computer.   After unplugging and replugging various cords, the camera finally connected.  Then after taking images of M3, the filter wheel had the error “Error=4” which was fixed by disconnecting the filter wheel in the MaxiumDL Setup tap of the camera control window.  We finished the night by taking pretty pictures of M51.
