An odd but positive update on my mini-saga:

After applying for a code for our site with > 30 telescopes but hearing nothing for over a year, and after I then withdrew the code application, all of a sudden I stumble across it in the updated code list: it's V28.

Well, all right then!--my scope is booked tonight, but I'll take a few recovery images tomorrow night, report findings in the usual format, and see what happens.

Those of you still waiting for codes but getting no MPC response might want to search the list by (part of) your submitted site name, too. I found my new code via, but it's confirmed at MPC .

Color me smiling but baffled (how I go through most of life).
