Crew 177 Astronomer Report 30Mar2017
Astronomer Report
On Sol 1 & 2 the sky was too cloudy to attempt to use the telescope.  On Sol 3, we enjoyed the night sky with the naked eye.  On Sol 4 we went to the Musk Observatory and followed the quick guide procedures.
We were able to view and focus on Jupiter, but were unable to focus on Polaris or Beetle Juice.  Because we were unable to complete the alignment procedure we discontinued use of the telescope.
