helped at the CAO

Helped at the Carr Astronomical Observatory work party. Rhonda too. Amazingly, the weather cooperated.

Started off Friday night deploying a new wireless access point (donated by Bruce Street Technologies). I worked, as usual, on small motors. Maintained the generator. Maintained Blade Runner and Green Flash, the walk-behind and ride-on mowers, respectively, while Stargrazer was hauled to our local mechanic for an assessment. Examined another small motor unit that I had previously overlooked. Updated our motors parts and supplies inventory. I installed a new uninterruptible power supply in the main observatory so to support the local area network for the MODL users. Tested the Tony Horvatin Observatory roof rotation and the Sue Lora Observatory roof sliding. As others upgraded the cameras, I installed and configured the new surveillance appliance. As the first in line for worker support, I took a lot of questions. I also had a chance to photograph the printed circuit board inside the Paramount ME.

This on top of the weekend supervisor duties.

Rhonda was captain of team Algieba. They finished all their tasks included the trenching job!


Ian D shot some shots, which he shared via his flickr account.
