Refresh Timer Exception Phase=5

This has been an on-going problem with the Digital Dome Works ASCOM driver.  This error loses connection between the dome and ACP and leaves the dome in an unsafe condition. Not suitable for automated imaging.  There has been a new ASCOM driver in the works for quite some time now.  If a new driver doesn't come out soon, I'll have to like at getting an alternative (more expense) dome control system such as MaxDome.

AAVSO Membership

I should have joined years ago, but then again, I didn't realize how much I would enjoy doing science by contributing photometric and astrometric data - mostly automated! So now I'm a memebr of the AAVSO with an observer code.  The staff at the AAVSO HQ are great, and the members have been very helpful.  The AAVSO web site and other resources are top notch!
