1 Feb 2013: Six good hours of observing with a chain of ACP scripts, last script ended about 1:30 AM (darks and biases), scope pointing to the west and low. Scope doesn't home automatically (should it?) so I home it via The Sky and the software reports slewing but it never reports reaching home. I go to the observatory, physically, and find the scope's RA alarm on and the scope pointing west still. The Sky seems to have lost contact with the scope.
