Removed the 6” refractor from the main scope and returned it to Bob. Removed the old finder scopes from the orange Celestron, installed and aligned a Telrad finder. Added some duct tape to the inside rim of the dust cap to ensure the cap fits snugly when in place. The new Celestron mounting plate is not compatible with the existing Vixen style base plate on the 24” scope. Removed the base plate and gave it to Blair so a wider plate can be fabricated. The existing side rails can be reused.



Masked, primed, and painted the new dome room door. Removed stenciling from west door in preparation for repainting it. Replaced the weathered Curtis-Elite sign with a new one.
