**Note, the last two presets seem to take a very long time. The Mount and rotators were tracking after about 1 minute, but another 2-3 minutes passed before the IIF returned sucessful. Everything seemed to be fine with the preset, just really slow. In fact, the preset to M50149 was send at 00:49 and did not return. The preset with aborted at 01:00:04 (IIF Gui) and still did not return. Jon parked the telescope and shutdown.

Wind ~ 10-16 m/s

Temp ~ -5C
