16 people. This was a most disappointing night. Haze and small showers teased us all evening. One group of visitors from Sturbridge hoped to see something when a small patch cleared above our heads. Unfortunately, this was just after one shower and another hit us less than 20 minutes later.

Joe installed the new computer. We tried to get our first photos through the CCD of the radio tower to the north west. Some sort of setup glitch in the SCSI interface makes it impossible to use that interface until we can resolve the problem. We fell back on the simpler but slower serial interface and we were able to capture our first images of the radio tower. We have additional work to do, but we have made substantial progress.
