Nightlog 2011-04-09

*** 0.97-1.1 arcsec seeing images obtained with SALTICAM!

*** First RSS imaging after the re-installation!

- SALTICAM was ready to roll after its brief time in the workshop for repairs.
The stuck guide probe was tested and seems to work fine.

- The seeing improved and stayed below 1'' for a large portion of the night.
There was some problems with obtaining a good focus, which was due to a change
in the auto collimator offsets. New offsets were determined which produced
much better results.

- Had some tracker trouble but it was a successful night nonetheless.
