Thanks to the efforts of the McDonald technical and observational support staff, MONET/North is nearly ready to resume operations.  In addition to replacing the damaged cables and hardware, Terry Wilemon (McD) came up with an additional mechanism for preventing the derotator at the Nasmyth axis from ever again going beyond its allow range.

As soon as the new hardware can be tested, we hope to resume operations.


Many thanks to Terry and the rest of the McDonald staff for all of their efforts!
