felt bad

I declined another invite. In the middle of my two-day teach. Ignored more CSAC alerts.

This time, Manuel did, in fact, setup and try imaging. But then he sent me a message, a little after midnight...
What a frustrating night.  My 9.25 OTA is way, way off collimation.  I don't know what Jim did back in July.  It is horrendous.  I tried to do it my self, but it is difficult to do it alone.  I guess I have to use my planetary camera and look at the computer screen while I adjust the screws.  What a [appropriate alliterative expletive removed] frustrating night.  Seeing was very good for the city standards.
Felt very bad for Manuel. Looks like optical train work is in order...
