Over The edge


First test rollout!

It's been there before during the welding but not in one assembled piece and now the iOptron is in place. It sits on a cutoff verion of its original pier, but the little grub screws that used to hold it together have been replaced by 8 M10 bolts. Belts and braces!

I haven't jacked it up yet out there as the little piece of wooden decking - a whole 80*80cm - needs some holes cut out and cement support blocks made to take the load of the three jack bolts.

The black thing down the bottom is the 'Crawler' that takes the Crane over the high threshold. Inside the flat the two become one unit that I can move about for parking it somewhere.

So far so good!
