Teide Stars Image Blank

You may have noticed last weekend that the images from the Teide star camera were coming back blank. We believed that the problem is with the new Sun shutter that was fitted in the December maintenance trip.

I connected to the shutter manually and tested the operation of the shutter.

Feedback from the webcam images suggested that the shutter was operating. I checked the scripts which open and close the shutter and tuned them to ensure the shutter would work well.

As you can see from the video above, the work has returned the Teide star camera to active service.
