    Bob,

    Unfortunately the problem came back last night: the dome is in error and the whole system is stuck. Let me explain:
    - We launch the system via the java scipt given in Startup.txt.
    - The telescope connects, but the dome goes in error.

    By analyzing the ASCOM logs, we see that everything is good on the side of the dome. What is disturbing is that the status of the dome is not asked when ACP puts the dome in error. With Michael, there is something that escapes us (I attached some comments from Michael just below) and it now seems clear to me that you have to take a look. This is not satisfactory because it prevents activating the scheduler with the quiet mind.

    ACP indicates an dome shutter error...:


    17:24:20 Open dome shutter.
    17:24:20 ** #domeopen - Unexpected shutter status 4
    17:24:20 Shutter : ERROR MESSAGE.
    17:24:20 Please contact expert
    17:24:20 **Failed to open the Dome Shutter

    ... but never asks our driver about the shutter status

    After that time, ACP does not ask the Dome for more values (eventhough the error appears 25s later)


    This was the same last time, so we do not understand where ACP gets the shutter error from if is does not ask our driver about it.
