However I am trying to get them back on-sky quickly. Trying to avoid the delay of shipping from/to Hawaii and whatever additional time needed on the bench. I opened up the unit and don't find anything obvious. Connectors are fine, no cold solder joints and the voltage regulator is fine. It could have been popped from GRP from a nearby lightning strike.
Eventual plan is to have them get a brand-new CP4, if and when they get some budget to work with again.

Send the broken one in and we'll see what's what with it. Maybe easily fixable.

Subject: [ap-gto] Looking for one or two CP3's
One of the smaller UofH observatories I shepherd over here in Hawaii is using a 1200 and the existing CP3 has died. The budget for this particular research project is currently frozen so they can't simply replace it with a CP4. So my thought is that I will give them a CP3 to keep them going but first I have to find one. So if anyone here is willing to sell me an old CP3 that I can in-turn donate to the VYSOS-12 observatory, please contact me off-list.
