     122/4/2021 : changed MaxIM DL configuration to NOT connect to focusser. Seems to solve focuser hang up problems!

    14 1/29/2021: after seeing repeated dome failures, inspected and found that gear box had lost its seal and all of its oil. Removed gear box, found some brass shavings from gear. Cleaned carefully and added two new seals with the Right Stuff. However, upon hardening, this did not allow gear to rotate, so removed one of the seals and used old gasket instead (new gasket material purchased, but old one was in good shape and allowed smooth motion). Gear box filled with 75W-90 oil. Cleaned up dome and installed gear box and motor.

However, upon hardening, this did not allow gear to rotate, so removed one of the seals and used old gasket instead (new gasket material purchased, but old one was in good shape and allowed smooth motion). Gear box filled with synthetic 75W-90 oil. Cleaned up dome and installed gear box and motor.

    16181/6/2021: we've continued to have issues with focuser hanging up. Added an USB 3.0 hub and connected both QHY camera and focusser to it.  Also, have been getting Blinky mode issues, so lubricated RA drive some more, still with old Moly EB tube
