  1. Hi I almost sure you need the "GEM auto Flip Go To" ticked in Sitech. The mount should track passed the meridian up to your 2 degree limit. Or it will be flipped by NINA within that time. I may be wrong, give it a try. Graham
  2. Steve I read in the NINA forum that they are working towards Dome support. Weather is now supported and Switch's. I have not looked at what Weather does when it detects an unsafe condition. There is an option at the moment to run a script when the sequence finishes. So that could close the dome/roof. Unless I missed it I don't see an option to run a script at the beginning of a sequence. Graham
  3. Steve Mr Browns Dew Controller looks very interesting as well as a Myfocuser. On the MySQM project he recommends the Mega and not the Nano but the PCB appears to be for the Nano. Which Arduino did you use and what functions did you fit? Graham
  4. Hi PCB`s were ordered 1st July and arrived today two weeks later. The boards look fine, were well packaged and I got a complimentary roll of insulating tape. Company was JLCPCB.COM Minimum order 5 boards. Price £5.85 including shipping from HongKong. Great service, I will be using them again. Problem is I have to make 5 of everything There are quiet a few Robert Brown MY projects I am interested in. Regards Graham
  5. Carol If you want to fit the TS 0.79x 3" FR you will need the following adapter from TS. The camera side of the FR is M48x0.75 thread. https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p9017_Lacerta-Adapter-to-female-M68x1-thread-for-Skywatcher-ESPRIT-apos.html SW flattener comes ready to fit to the 100 and again has a M48x0.75 thread on the camera side. If you really want to go with a FR you then save the cost of the SW flattener. Regards Graham
  6. I have a SW Esprit 100 fitted with the TS 0.79x 3" FR (on Göran recommendation) and I am very pleased with the combination. Regards Graham
  7. Thank you Paul, A custom f8 collimator is the perfect solution. It's printing now. Merlin, I will be ordering the optics next week. including 25 x 25 600 l/mm grating. Thanks, I'm sure there will be plenty of questions about the BASS project Regards Graham
  8. Hi My Lowspec is just about printed with only a few parts to complete. I have a questions. I hope Paul or an experienced user can help. I will be using a RC10 F8 scope. What combination of part 08 collimatorlens holder f10 and grating type will give the best results. Many thanks Graham
  9. Hi All, First I would like to thank Alan (Symmetal) for his help with this project. He pointed me towards using KiCAD. Then spent his valuable time carrying out most of the work. Thanks Alan Ok this is how for we have got so far. Its a double sided board 79 x 43. Berger file is generated and all I have to do is send it to the pcb manufacture of my choice. Graham
  10. Paul, No its ok. I thought is might be updated when ever you uploaded a new part or modification. Graham
  11. Hi Paul, I'm pretty much a beginner using Cura. So there may be an option to print different areas at different settings. I will have a look. Printing the cover at 0.1mm would take a while PETG carbon was new and straight out of a sealed bag. I will have another try today. Question. Is the Lowspec 3 Fusion 360 whole model on Thingiverse file automatically kept up to date as updates are applied? Graham
  12. Greg, Thanks for the information. I did find them hidden in Experimental. At the moment I am going with the normal support. I wonder if it would be a good idea to just make a hole in the cover and print a separate thread insert to take the Grating holder cap. That way you could print the cover fairly fast and the Grating thread insert slow with the optimum setting for thread printing. Insert would then be glued in later. At the moment I am having a problem with PETG carbon. Every where it says it sticks to every bed surface to well. But after a successful test print I cant get it to stick. It just drag's around and forms a ball around the nozzle. Many Thanks Graham
  13. Fozzy I just looked at Fritzing. I uploaded another Gerber file and ready to order in seconds. 18Euro for three boards from Germany and free shipping. Great. Alan They also accept KiCad files Thanks Fozzy Graham
