Title: Lightning Strike and Recovery of ESPaDOnS and GRACES

Presenter: Greg Barrick


On 19 August 2018 during the Venus observations, a lightning strike caused the failure of the majority of the motors on the ESPaDOnS/GRACES spectrograph. The efforts to continue observations in the short term and to fix all of the systems in the longer term will be described.
