OWL failure

Friday, October 8, 2021 11:58 AM

Problem(s) Encountered:

Shortly after 01:00, the CCD stopped taking data.  Owl error messages included  Not connected to any controller! 

Various attempts to restart Owl or the controller were unsuccessful.


Tried the usual button pushing on the Owl GUI from home before resigning myself to a morning trip to the mountain.  Power cycled the CCD controller but problem persisted.  Removed and reseated fiber connections (both at controller and PC).  This corrected the problem.
