Charles, David, and Mike went back to the observatory on Sunday evening to align the finder scope, check polar alignment, run the telescope through its paces with the hand control, then repeat the process with a lap top. We confirmed that the vibration problem had been corrected and the corrector plate problem had been corrected by Vancouver Telescopes
