Re: (IAAC) Bradford Robotic Telescope Operations Menu



Hello Penny -
Glad to hear it wasn't just me!  That sort of thing can bring a feeling
of paranoia over one.  Probably just WAAAY too many people signing up
for the Bradford and requesting endless images of bright solar system
objects.  Seems like you could see what was in the schedule queue and
there were hundreds of requests for pictures of the moon.
Another great idea that sorta fell apart at the implementation stage.
