  Begun observation session with a run down of the procedure to prepare the dome (i.e. opening the shutter, rotating the dome).
Changed:

Identified a bright object in the night sky with the naked eye to set as our target for observation. Aligned the open dome shutter and telescope with said object. This was done crudely first by eye, then using the viewfinder and finally centred with the help of continuous exposures in the Maxim suite.

This was done crudely first by eye, then using the viewfinder and finally centred with the help of continuous exposures in the Maxim suite. By setting the camera mode to continuous and applying a short exposure time, you are able to produce images of what the telescope is looking at in relatively rapid sucession allowing for an almost real time feed of what the telescope is aligned with. This makes centering and aligning the telescope easier.
  Went through the alignment and tracking procedure on the telescope to account for the rotation of earth.
