What to do When Problems Occur


If you should run into problems during the night, first look through the online manual and the Troubleshooting section below for possible solutions. If you still can not solve the problem, and it's before 10:00, call the Site Manager for assistance - phone numbers are on the white board. If it is after 10:00 and you are unable to continue observing, and have exhausted all other possibilities feel free to call the Site Manager. Do Not Call Kitt Peak Electronic Maintenance, or the WIYN operator unless told to do so.
