On 7 Jan 2010 during the day my dad had gone on the roof off the observatory to remove the 12 inches of snow (thanks Dad) so I was then able to slide the roof off. I have to say everything came together.
- Ross's LED reticule light for the finder scope is a definite must have!!!
Brian finder scope mount worked a treat. Not as shaky as the one provided for by the manufacturer
DSLR cable (provided for by Ross) worked
I was out for 2 hours and it was -6 and falling so I wasn't out for long.
I’m now waiting for my remote focuser to arrive and I need to do some cable management, fix a few leaks, create a procedures list, log book, make a batinov mask, drift alignment, try and hook up a USB Joy Pad and a better way of powering the dew heater.
But so far a good start to the New Year for the observatory
