Summary: 01/14 We observed the Moon and we waited for a comet, but the weather did not allowed us to observe. Today, 01/15 I plugged in all cords for autoguide and the dome, checked the programs and now I am waiting for going and playing with autoguide.
Objects viewed: the Moon.
Problems Encountered: 1) The “clack” sound goes from the pier, from somewhere inside, it seems like from the part when USB-ranger is. It happens when telescope is stationary.
2) Sorry, if I missed something in the instructions and guides and consume your time, but I cannot figure out the reason of the next situation: the dome is not synchronized with the telescope. Telescope is in switch position, all cables seem on their places, program MAXDOME II see the telescope and the dome, but when I click “slave dome to Scope” it starts series of rotations like turn ~ 20o, stop, waiting, new ~ 20o, stop, waiting, repeat this cycle till I uncheck the box. Like it cannot find the telescope. What might I have done wrong?
