 +====== Dome opening and closing ======

 +You cannot open dome manually using buttons in copula if //​rts2-dome-ir//​ is running - check in //​rts2-mon//​ **IRDOME** component. If you would like to operate dome manually, please switch to local mode using key on dome LED box. Bear in mind that dome will not connect properly to controlling computer if it is in local mode during cabinet boot.
 +
 +If you left dome in remote mode, and you try to open it, it will close as soon as you release opening button. That is a new security feature, which makes sure that dome is closed if it should be closed. Removing it will affect our other setups, and as there is a solution for manual control, I am not inflicting towards removing it. You can open dome from //​rts2-dome//​ by selecting **IRDOME** and entering //open// command. As expected, //close// command is for closing it.
