Imaging on Jan 25-26, 2003
at Jan 21 Coordinates

We took 3x1200sec images [Jan 25] and it looks like they turned out pretty good! A spot shows up just to the right of the Jan 21 coordinates on frames 1 & 2 and also a larger, more diffuse spot a little ways directly below which moves right over the two images plus some other stuff near that area. Looks like we're back in action!

The weather is more clear tonight [Jan 26] than yesterday. I took an hour long image at 6:31:07 UT at Jan 21 coordinates. The skies were clear, however, the telescope came up online late and someone used it for 50 minutes. I tried to take another image but I got guiding errors after 15 minutes. More attempts failed.

Once again, these are FITS files, which means one must use a FITS viewer which can be downloaded from a Harvard site. The files are dated Jan 10, were taken in the early morning of Jan 10th in the clear skies of Arizona. The Coordinates of RA 4.36007 and Dec 12.11875 for Jan 21, 2003 must be Converted. Use Pierre's Guide to locate the coordiantes in reference to neighboring stars, including the large SAO star used for orientation on the Sep 21, 2002 imaging.
