MDRS ROBOTIC OBSERVATORY: (MDRS-14)

MDRS-14 took observations of:

NGC 2623:

(5 exposures of 40 seconds in R)

(5 exposures of 75 seconds in V)

(5 exposures of 150 seconds in B)

(5 exposures of 150 seconds in Generic B)

(5 exposures of 75 seconds in Generic V)

(4 exposures of 40 seconds in Generic R)

Resubmitted observations for NGC 2623 with longer exposure times.
Current exposures recorded do not display the celestial body and
images are of very low quality overall.

Images submitted with report: None (Observations for other celestial
objects are still pending. Submitted a color image of the Crab Nebula
yesterday as Photo of the Day)

Problems encountered: MDRS-14 telescope only recorded 4/5 exposures
for Generic R filter (possibly due to weather causing the camera to
abort).
