Problems: 

At 05:30 UT Moving on HIP022424 telescope stops moving in RA. In the dome with the hand paddle: fails to move E or W. It does move fine in Declination. I can hear the RA drive running but, no motion at all. Inspected the RA drive (I sent pictures to E. Parkes and J. Briones.) It seems to me a O-ring is either loose or just broken.  

So, call it a night.
