    Hello

    Hi Michael, and a very warm welcome from the Lounge. From a former, now retired, Engineer Steve
  9. I must admit I never had confidence with SGPro regarding unattended automation. However, I have recently moved over to Voyager and now wouldn't hesitate in unattended imaging sessions. Don't get me wrong, writing a full dragscript code and incorporating full emergency procedures can be daunting to start with. Although, there are lots of examples to use in the Voyager forum. Steve
  10. That's looking good, Francis. It's nice that you have had clear skies this evening to fine tune your scope. Unfortunately, for me, the clear skies promised this evening have not arrived and therefore, my fully automated Dome final testing will have to go on the back burner Steve
  11. Hi John, and a very warm welcome to the Lounge Steve
  12. Motor details:- https://www.amazon.co.uk/QINGRUI-100rpm-120rpm-200rpm-disassemble/dp/B08H78LPDX/ref=sr_1_47?dchild=1&keywords=12v%2Bmotor%2B20rpm&qid=1603102065&sr=8-47&th=1 From Amazon & not Ebay. Although this shows a 400 RPM motor you will need something a little slower Steve
  13. The motor is a 12v 20 rpm geared motor I picked up from Ebay as a trial motor. At the time I didn't think I could rebuild the shutter to implement automation. I did, the motor is far beefier than I realised and the track and gear were purchased from https://www.beltingonline.com/. I will try to find the details of the motor, also. Steve
  14. Here is my DIY Dome shutter I built earlier this year. It may not be a roof, but it let's in the night sky Shutter_Movement.mp4
