----------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTES FOR SEQUENCE ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. check at the start of each sequence the RA coordinates for the meridian (MER = the sidereal time) 2. before doing any pointing bring telescope to zenith 3. point telescope to the coordinates in the table below. Notice that the RA is the coordinate of the meridian (MER) plus or minus the specified amount of hours. 4. check the alignment of the dome with the telescope. Write on second column how well aligned it is. 5. Bring telescope to zenith again. 6. Go back and repeat items 1. through 5. coordinates dome ok or not?
