Shutting down camera and telescope

Placing telescope into the zenith: Select the position panel and toggle the right ascension button. The button displays now hour angle meaning that the coordinates are interpreted as hour angle and the window labeled equinox changes into a button zenith. Tracking is automatically switched off. Press zenith to move the telescope into the parking position (Fig. 10).

Closing the dome: Select the control panel (Fig. 2) and press slit c(lose). The dome rotates into its parking position before the slit closes.

Switch off the main controls of the telescope in the control panel of the OLT control main window.

Now all control lamps (except for Camera systems on) should show red lights. The control lamps for the camera cooling may still blink.

Stop telescope control software: Press quit in the main button bar of the OLT control main window to leave oltcontrol.

Backup: If you do not trust the integrity of your hard-disc, you may consider making a back-up. The easiest way is a copy of your data directory to another directory located on a different hard-disc.

Logout from the computer.
