A blog about a system to determine terrestrial albedo by earthshine observations. Feasible thanks to sheer determination.

Apparently managed to 'unstick' the previously stuck filter-wheel stage that caused blocking of the FOV by the edge of the aperture of the stage that holds the SKEs. This was done from the Engineering Mode by 'finding the homes'. The Large Rotary Stage did not reset in such a way that the green light indicating success ever lit up. The Little Rotary Stage rotated, cleared the blockage, and its light lit up.

Large rotary stage lightstill does not light up. Sometimes error messages appear on the screen relating to 'failed to find reference'.
