Re: 3600GTO questions

i have both a left and right pocket and that is my point: he takes from one and puts into the other and claims he gave me something....
I guess I should feel blessed if I get even 50% of what was in my left pocket back when it goes into my right pocket.... usually there's a bit of "loss" in that round trip through washington.

I guess it depends on whether you are the left pocket or the right pocket.

None of us can afford one until Barrack gets elected and gives us all

4. Does the precision encoder system improve pointing, or just
tracking? (I know there are other variables affecting pointing
e.g. refraction and flex of the OTA.)
To expand this, the mount gearing system is quite precise and is
capable of
pointing to any known angle to within +- 5 arc seconds over the
entire 360
degree rotation of each axis. It has been tested on a precision
encoder to that
level of accuracy. This includes all the gear errors, periodic and

factors of
atmospheric dispersion, orthogonality of the optical tube,
flexure, mirror flop, time
errors in RA, etc. Those need to be modeled and compensated with
