Some caution noted on Dragon. If I heard right, was related to relative GPS. No troubleshooting for now, they have multiple redundancy and only one is needed.

Once arriving at waypoint 0, dragon won’t stop and will rather keep moving.

Edit: passed waypoint 0!

Dragoneye convergence notice. This system was actually a DTO (Detailed Test Objective) on SHUTTLE Endeavour (STS-127) in 2009!

Look inside Endeavour, and a view of it from station.

Will be proceeding past waypoint 1, and will hold once arriving at waypoint 2.
