At the moment 93% of the programming of the new TCS been implemented, and the main part of the software will be ready soon. Hardware for the adapter and mirror control was purchased and installed in such a way that it can be tested with the new software in daytime and one can switch back to the old TCS before the night.

Several tests were made with the new TCS, where especially a lot of problems were found with the rotator control. This is made more difficult by the fact that the documentation was found to be incorrect.
