Arthur, crew astronomer from the previous crew, showed me how to use the telescope (how to move shutter and dome, putting eyepieces etc.). Since it was windy and cloudy last night, we did not observe anything. We didn’t move the dome very much so it is facing to the South as last time Arthur positioned for battery charge. The attached are pictures of Visual Astronomy Box and USB Ranger. Diagonal stays on the telescope. I found a polarization filter in the astronomy box which is not shown in the example photo.
