#213 - Friday, September 20, 2019 - Routine

After the physics department weekly social hour, a group of us walked to Cream for some amazing ice cream sandwiches.  The rest of the group went to Taco Bell for dinner (this particular Taco Bell serves beer!), but it was already 8:30 PM, and I needed to get home so I could start up my telescope!  I would have set it to start automatically, but I didn't want it sitting open in the sun all day while I was at school.

I got home a little after 9 and got everything up and running.  I had it run until midnight, about an hour after moonrise.  Everything went smoothly.  Not much of note!

It is really cool to check on progress from my smartphone using TeamViewer.

Screenshot was taken before I changed the sequence to replace M33.

My rule on log entries stands: any night out with the telescope!  So I will continue to write up nights that go smoothly and I sleep through them.  I'll probably add some other interesting tidbits though, like setting up SGP or stuff like that.
