North:  still waiting for the replacement of UPS batteries zapped by a lightning strike the end of May.   Should be any day now.....!  Jul 24 : batteries installed, waiting for final OK.


South: the new science camera has developed a vacuum leak which requires sending the camera back to the manufacturers in Tucson/AZ/USA.  :-((  This means re-installing the science camera sometime at the beginning of 2016.   In the meanwhile, we'll try to operate with the test camera (the same one used by MONET/North for many months now).  At the end of July, I'm going to Sutherland to switch cameras.  The hope is that by the beginning of October, we'll have a fully working system, albeit with the test camera.
