The problem with the cable twist in the adapter is already discussed above and was also mentioned in last semester's report.

A new connection box for electrical power was installed in the adapter and the wiring was reorganizing for better handling and safety.

The rotator encoder or its associated electronics shows occasional read errors. These are not yet imposing any problem in the positioning. We are logging these errors and if this becomes worse it might be needed to change (part of) the system.
