waiting for Mars...

OK. I've got some time now...

Per my log notes from Wednesday, Mars won't clear the tree until 9:45 or 10:00.

So I can watch the rest of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Well, I should do a bit more prep... 

The John Grim computer is charging. Red lights on (including the one in The Office).

To do items:

  • drape an extension cord out the door
  • hook up the mount power
  • hook up the mount data cable (hopefully, it will work, the old cable)
  • prep the δ case (delta or dew heating)
  • install the dew strap to the objective
  • install the dew strap for the eyepiece

Ah. The baader zoom eyepiece is back inside. Good. Warming up.

Oh. I should do the polar alignment...

Oh. And I should preview the weather conditions... 

Particularly the dew point.

Then I can return to the movie...
