Hi, Paramount users (in particular),
Last night in my observatory I wasn't totally aware of where the counterweights were in relation to my head and I stood up abruptly, cracking my skull against the 60 pounds of counterweight. Ouch.
I then subsequently noticed the aiming had shifted slightly - my current target was a few arcmin off-center.
FIgured I may as well build a new pointing model, just in case.
224 of 231 points later, model complete. 7 arcsec - I can live with that.
BUT - it also warned me my polar alignment was off slightly. I made the recommended small adjustments in both axes - was that a mistake?
Do I now have to do the whole modeling all over again? Clouds came in before I could see the post-adjustment goto and tracking accuracy.
I feel such an idiot
