Summary of any observatory issues: Summary of any observatory issues: During captures with the deep space telescope one of two errors show up at some point during the night "Mount error” or “Camera error”. Hypothesis: the error is caused by the power switch between the battery and the generator. Questions to evaluate the hypothesis: Does the observatory have an active UPS? Could we do a controlled experiment with a very short capture and switch the power supply at a known time to see if the error shows up?
