  1. Dear Avalon Enthusiasts, Do you have PHD2 Guiding Logs that you could share? Preferably at least 30 minutes long. I am curious about the contribution to the overall error from the individual parts of the belt reduction gear. PHD2 Log Viewer provides nice analysis capabilities for that. I am especially interested in the frequency analysis. Background is that I have built a motion module that uses a timing belt gear reduction quite similar to the Avalon mounts. Performance is quite good already, but I would like to compare it to the "real thing". CS Guido

  3. Hi there wondering if anybody has experience of using the Avalon T-Pod range of tripods. I had my eyes set on an Altair Astro Starbase as an addition to my field observation platform, unfortunately production of these beasts has been suspended for the moment (issues with production costs v market price point). I am consequently looking for an alternative and was wondering about the T-Pods. One of the things that attracted me to the Starbase in the first place along with its ultra stable design, was its large adjustable feet. I find that normal tripod feet on my back lawn, are not stable, they tend to sink into the soil during the course of an observing session. The T-Pod feet look to be rather narrow in comparison to the Starbase, can anyone provide an opinion on their performance/stability in a lawn setup? Kind Regards Paul J.
