Summary:
I observed Mars and Saturn again, but could not obtain better images than last night. I wonder how precisely the Musk Observatory telescope can show images. I will try it again tonight if the weather allows.

Objects viewed:
Mars
Saturn

Problems encountered:
When closing the Dome, upper shutter moved oddly compared to the last few days. It moves an inch and stops then moves another inch while it overcomes the top part.
