    Dehumidifier finally died

    I purchased an EcoAir DD122-Mini desiccant dehumidifier, together with a separate Humidistat and this has worked faultlessly for over two years. I've set the Humidistat to come on at >60% and switch off at <58%. Steve

    EQ8 semi permanent installation

    There are members out there that have EQ6 Pro setups - semi permanent and permanent. The EQ8 tripod is built substantially stronger and more rigid than the EQ6. So I would say yes. Steve

    HEQ5 Synscan Pro issue

    Hi Andreas, A very warm welcome to the Lounge. As Cornelius stated, contact your Vendor. Do not try to fix it yourself as it will invalidate your warranty. Steve

    AZ-EQ6 Dec belt has snapped

    If you buy the belts from reputable companies like Beltingonline or HPC Gears you can order glass reinforced belts. These will not break, they are industrial quality and withstand thousands of RPM and many hundreds of hours of working life. The biggest danger for timing belts is "not enough tension" This causes the belts to slip, damaging the belt teeth and eventually rendering it useless. Steve

    14" EDGE HD Scope endless issues

    That dome is a work of art. Any Tinsmith would be proud of the quality of workmanship involved in making it. Regards dust....You cannot eliminate it, however hard you try. All you can do is clean the best you can, without damaging any optics and, as all have explained, use flats. Steve

    Must be something simple

    Hi Mick, Have a look at your fits header. that will give you the information you seek on whether the images are binned or not. Steve
  14. That is a really good image. The good thing is the Moon pops up quite regular. So another attempt is in the reckoning. Steve
