Todd, can you tell us why the screen on the weather computer was black? It must have been soemthing I did when I closed up Saturday morning, but for the life of me I don't know what.

Problems encountered, if any: Screen for Sara Observatory was "dark"; Todd able to turn it back on. No problems thereafter, but early clouds. Locking was nominal.
Centering typically eastward of requested center by a quarter to half frame. Used CTIO daytime web cam and the sky cam that looks upward through the Blanco 4-m dome. Very useful. Thanks to Ken, Bill and Todd for their help.
