  1. Thanks Steve, I'll take some photos when assembled in March. Is your T10 belt 16mm wide and the sprocket 40 tooth?
  2. OK, I'll post updates as I go along. Hoping to start by mid March. Photo: Just temporarily assembled after purchasing to see how it all goes together.
  3. Thanks Steve for sharing your automation build. Nicely engineered, congratulations. I bought a Pulsar 2.2m dome recently (age uncertain- round dome - sliding shutter) and just about to start automating it.. Did you obtain the (40 tooth?) cog from beltingonline as well? Any particular windscreen motor you would recommend? Would appreciate any tips you would like to share of the build. Graham
  4. Hi Tony, Thanks for posting your dome automation MP4 which gives me much encouragement. I'm just about to start on a 2.2m Pulsar automation and would greatly appreciate any hints and tips you could offer. Many thanks, Graham
  5. Thanks very much Dave for your advice here. Received my Synscan wifi adapter today, plugged into the AZ EQ6, fired up my Android Nexus tablet. Connected fine. Set up Sky Safari Plus with the IP address and connected to mount and operating motors. All seems fine on Android. I can confirm it doesn't work with Ipad ! Very satisfying and now all set up for star parties for our summer visitors to SW France.
