AAVSOnet Status, 2020-08-01

Not much news; things are pretty quiet right now.  We're still waiting for delivery of the Pegasus power units.  Once we get these, the mounts and OTAs will be shipped to Australia to upgrade BSM_Berry and BSM_S.  I'm expecting the shipment to occur during late August.

Here is the status of the various sites:

BSM_Berry.  Operational, using Greg's private camera.

BSM_Hamren.  Operational.

BSM_NH. Operational.

BSM_NM. Operational.  Currently in the summer monsoon, so good nights are infrequent.

BSM_S. Operational, using Peter's private camera.

BSM_TX.  Operational.  Currently in the summer monsoon, so good nights are infrequent.

OC61. Operational.  The new QHY600 camera and filter wheel are being tested and should be shipped to New Zealand in about a week.

SRO.  Shut down for the summer monsoon.

TMO61.  Still being refurbished, not operational.
