Things are running pretty smoothly, except for usual weather constraints.

BSM_Berry.  Fully operational.

BSM_Hamren.  This system is currently located at Gary Walker's Cape Cod house.  He recently modified the enclosure so that the telescope can move to all locations with the roof closed.  That modification requires a new polar alignment, which should happen soon.  Once aligned, we'll start taking data again.

BSM_NH2.  Fully operational.  This has been a workhorse since the southwestern BSM sites have been mostly closed due to the normal monsoonal weather pattern.

BSM_NM.  Fully operational.  Just coming out of monsoon.

BSM_S.  Fully operational.  Peter has come back from his holiday - yay!  However, new images have not been calibrated yet due to some file path issues.

BSM_TX.  Not operational.  Dave Cowall is going to the site after the AAVSO meeting to get things working.

OC61.  Fully operational.

SRO.  Still closed down for monsoon, but should be back soon.

TMO61.  There remain some operational issues, but we hope to solve them shortly.
