Musk Observatory

Solar Features Observed: TBD

Images: None

Problems Encountered: Needed additional emergency instructions from Peter for closing the dome; received his contact information from Mission Support. The Gamma setting in SharpCap was missing and the telescope could not be set to Hibernate. The only settings were Goto and Set. We attempted to troubleshoot the former to no avail, and for the latter we used Set instead of Hibernate. Please see attached.
