Observatory Update: More Solar Panels, Better Alignment

new solar panels added

David and Mike attended the SCC Observatory in the afternoon of 9 November and installed additional solar panels on the south side of the observatory to boost the charging capacity of our solar power system. Mike and Charles returned in the evening to continue the alignment process they started with the drift alignments they did on the 4th of November. By the end of the session every time we asked the telescope to point at an object in the sky using either the handset or the laptop, the chosen target was in the middle of the eyepiece every time.
