  1. Nice and neat i’ll send mine to you when I’m ready lol
  2. Hi, ‘I’m interested in how much further you managed to get using this.
  3. I found that if there is an ELCB (or whatever they are these days) then the power net things don't seem to work well. Not supposed to be happy on extension cables - but I tried one c50m and the powernet worked fine
  4. Having some mesh wifi devices, I can get coverage to the pier form the house, so, just save images to a filled under onedrive so it synchs to wherever I need it Images ore only 24-24MB so, it works reasonably well. And, in case of "disaster" I have also run Cat 6 out to the pier too
  5. I tried using "A brief history of time", by some guy who wrote a couple of books on physics. After the 5th reading, only on the 2nd, I may start to understand the first chapter.
  6. I invested in a couple of mesh WiFi devices - but my pier is only 14m from the house.
  7. Can you confirm how tall is this and outside diameter please
  8. got the ASIaIR - not had a chance to use in anger - went to Sky before easter - it rained al the sum unsurprisingly. Only one faces rig - in rebuild stages but can knock up a couple semi rigs - per plus the Adventurer- also failed the test in Skye Too much stuff, no time to work outset combinations now....... wish I could retire - but at least 5yrs to go to UK pension
  9. The former I have no chance with now, given up on now. The latter, well, I let her marry me, so, there needs to be a two way compensation ............ as if.
  10. This year I have acquired star-watcher adventurer pro polemaster adapter for above replacement Az pin for pier lens cleaner and the 1st item was a gift. deos this mean I am near the end, or just deluding myself
  11. I replaced the lower end caps with normal nuts once mount attached I went round each bolt in turn to lower the platform, then tightened the lower nots to secure. if/when the mount hadn’t to come off, remove four lowest nuts and lift
  12. I’ll be stopping at the 10” reflector. until I get a mount with 100lb+ payload.
  13. A joyous time with three daughters at the same time; the uniforms cost was close to the actual fees particularly as the eldest were twins - no hand down option
