Well, after a report of good news yesterday, today I have to report bad news.  After inspecting the dome shutter, Nigel has found that the gearbox on the motor has failed.  He is going to open the gearbox up today and see if any repairs can be made, but does not have high hopes.  If parts have to be ordered, OC61 will be down for an extended period.  I'll let everyone know when I find out.
