  1. All Sky Camera Mark 7

    But one that requires great care no doubt.
  2. After reading the posts on here about 10 times to make sure I had some idea of what I needed to do I took the plunge again into Linux. Only, this time I stuck at it. I have loaded Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya Cinnamon edition on a fresh hard drive, I had serious problems with error messages on a couple of old but working drives, and then loaded ; Kstars Skychart (CDC) IndiStarter tried Skychart this morning and it appeared to connect first time to my Meade LX200 GPS. However, I had to go out as I needed a ride on the motorcycle to wipe the cobwebs away. Came back and opened the Obsys which is at the far end of the garden and is connected via Cat 5 and 6 cables via various converters. I used another computer (Win10) to access my internal and an external webcam set up and connected again. Well happy 😃 the scope does all it is supposed to do. What I need now is some Linux webcam software that will run over cat cables so I can keep it all on one machine. i have also purchased a Raspberry Pi3 as I would like to run my AP cameras from this and connect it to my network. That is my next challenge. 😊
  3. Yes please message sent.
  4. What's this gizmo?

    It’s a smartfinder probably off an LX90 GPS model

  7. First thing I would do is talk to your local council planning department. They are normally very helpful.

  9. Gina, looking forward to this project. Ed
  10. I run two cat 5 cables and associated converters and everything works fine. wifi for me at least is just to slow and prone to failing. Ed
  11. 2017 observatory design and build

    Ditch the tripod and dig the hole for pier. Worth it in the long run.

    What is the distance between your laptop and the scope.? USB cables do not like distance.
  15. Very, very nice thank you for sharing.
