    3535Dome is controlled by ACP; don't connect to the dome in MaximDL. Note that the dome is set up such that it will automatically close if it does not detect a signal from the control computer; so if you're up there doing maintenance and open it to let some light in, make sure the computer is on so it doesn't close itself.

    3939After suffering a failure of the dome control card we ordered a new card from Diffraction Limited. Upon installing it the dome immediately started to rotate endlessly. Pressing the stop button did stop the rotation, but only for as long as it was held in. Upon releasing the button, the dome began to rotate again.
     
    5656Power to the hardware, dome, and telescope are controlled through two internet-connected power strips. [http://tmopower1.nmsu.edu TMOPower1] is located next to the desk (western side of room). Most of the power sockets on the strips are labeled in the power control interfaces. Socket 1 controls the telescope power; note that turning this off will turn off power to TMOPower2 and all of its sockets! Socket 2 should never be left powered on!

    58 [http://tmopower2.nmsu.edu TMOPower2] is physically mounted on the telescope itself, and controls power to the instrumentation and associated hardware. Note that this powerswitch is itself powered through the telescope power, so will only be reachable if the telescope power is on on TMOPower2.
