TITLE: Occultation Studies of Small Bodies in the Outer Solar System
OBSERVER: Stephen Levine
FILTERS: POETS (Portable Occultation, Eclipse and Transit System)
POETS was mounted on the IR Nasmyth platform during our March 2017 observing night. The camera head will need to be re-mounted, and attached to the cables, but all the rest of the system is already in place.
Should be able to install the camera in about 15minutes with access to the telescope Nasmyth platform.
