Southwestern telescopes shut down for monsoon

All of the following telescopes are shut down (in most cases, computers are powered off and disconnected), as the southwestern monsoon has started.  This doesn't necessarily mean totally cloudy nights, but there will be potential for thunderstorms every afternoon, and high humidity even if the clouds part through the night.  Tom will be using this period to refurbish some of the telescopes and replace their B filters.
