147 people. What a huge crowd Francine had to manage the week that Les decided to take off for Darkest Downeast. And to make things more annoying, the computer inside the telescope and the computer holding the targeting information decided to play games. To point the telescope successfully requires that the scope should move with a small fraction of a degree from the ideal. For some reason, the scope decided that it would go to the general area of the sky but not where the object was located. This is sort of like sending someone to the State Capital Building and ending up in Cranston. Sort of close but useless as far as doing what needs to be done.

Well, we'll get this fixed soon even if it takes a few minutes out of next times viewing schedule.
