CCD error

The camera is hung in a state that requires a power cycling.
Camera fails to execute a software reset
The camera returns the error “failure in reset”
The leach controller window shows highly incorrect values in gain (e.g., -4095), amp, heat, etc.
Cycle the power on the camera on site (cannot be done remotely). It is unclear where this problem stems from.

Updated RCT blog

I’ve updated the RCT webpage to highlight science. I’ve moved the telescope maintenance issues and bugs to a separate location on the site, but you will still get posts will still get to the RSS. Please review and let me know if have suggestions or comments.
