Wind Conditions: Quite a lot of wind but not that much during the window of observation.

Summary: I went to the Musk Observatory to get a first experience with the telescope. I followed the instructions with success until I had to take a look at the Sun. It was not well aligned with the Sun Tracker but I couldn’t succeed to use the Hand control to make it right. Then I changed the set up ( time ) to get the Sun aligned and it was already to cloudy to take a good look…

Objects Viewed: none

Problems Encountered: I didn’t find the instructions to use the Hand control in order to move the telescope.
