Orion finder fixed (Toronto)

Did a star test and the final adjustment on the loan program's Orion finder scope. Locked the focus ring.

I actually looked at the Great Orion Nebula from the deck! I could see two stars in the Trapezium. Clear. Good focus (with my glasses on). Mini observing session!

I did not find anything really wrong with it. My initial impression, when I tested it in the daylight, was simply that the focus ring had been turned too far. Easy repair.

Reported to John.
