Astronomy Report

Name: Ignacio Sánchez Casla
Crew: 227

Sky Conditions: High altitude clouds
Wind Conditions: No wind

MUSK SOLAR OBSERVATORY
Observation Start Time: 14:00
Observation End Time: 15:00

Summary: Tried to use the solar observatory this afternoon but due to the very unstable conditions created by the clouds blocking then unblocking the Sun’s view I couldn’t take any meaningful pictures.

Objects Viewed: Sun

Problems Encountered: None

MDRS ROBOTIC OBSERVATORY

Robotic Telescope Requested: MLC-RCOS16

Objects to be imaged this evening:
– Messier 51
– Messier 64
– Messier 57
– Messier 101
– NGC 7023
The usual suspects

Images submited with this report:
None. Had a problem with my computer this afternoon – poured some coffee on it and he didn’t really liked it, he’s fine now – so I will process last night pictures this evening.

Errors Encountered:
MDRS-WF seems not to be looking in right direction. I know that it is not entirely operational and that you are monitoring the situation so no worries on my side. I won’t use it tonight tough.
Some images failed on the MLC-RCOS16 but most of them were fine.

I have no credits left on the New Mexico Observatories. Since I will only be using the MLC-RCOS16, can I get my credits transfered?
