  2. Hope you’re all having a great catch up. bit of a boring question is there a decent mobile phone Vodafone reception there for Internet would anyone know? just so I can keep on watching my tutorials when I get there!
  3. Aha ! Thank you for this! of course. learning all the time!
  4. So I got a 13.8 power supply and 10 m of the cable. using a calculator I had expected approx .7 V drop with at 7 m I plugged it into the 10 meter line cable and read the volts and it was 13.8 i’m not complaining - it’s nice to have good juice ! But still maybe I was fine with the cheaper option!
  5. Thanks for this Olly. I have to say so far so good with the large bin however I will be keeping my eye on this at the whole time plus I can never stop tinkering So I might just give it a go

  10. Shoot was trying to get. all purchases from same site i cannot Looks like Ill by the cable suggested above from Farnell and supply from CPC/Farnell Thanks all
  11. I think this belongs in a different forum section
  12. I reinforced the underside of the decking many times and coach bolted it in. It’s not ideal but it actually works great. when polar aligning I have to stand aside check it and go back and forth and stand aside again so my weight on the decking does not influence the alignment. Plus I control it from inside the house on Wi-Fi which helps They said a non-decoupled pier on a decking would not work but I defied that!
  13. I bought it 2nd hand. It’s great. Can check measurements tonight if you want to know
  14. Yes mine is similar - Its just the contour of the pier I cant have it that neat there will be .5m mains cable and cig socket hanging about. I just wanted to get it as neat as poss -I should stop moaning !
