It's hard to work with a burned out connection block.....

We had some excitement on Saturday night when the spectrograph unexpectedly lost power. Tech. Ops tracked down the problem to a burned out connector block in the azimuth wrap connector. Keith kindly provided show-and-tell for the appreciation of Astro. Ops. The burned out portion is clearly visible -- if you can't tell from the above photo, see the blow up below. Operations quickly resumed and we've been happily taking data since!
