  1. Hello everybody! I measured my setup times when i did my last imaging run. Absolutely shocking Step 1: unmount 8" quattro, disassemble EQ6 into 3 parts, move parts to terrace and reassemble EQ6, remount 8", without counterweights: 6 minutes 50 seconds (correct position marked on terrace, with right arm hurt, good time ) Step 2: Mount counterweights and set scope to park position: 1 minute 55 secs Step 3: Connect power sources and connect all cabling: 20 minutes Step 4: get the computer and software running (on a very good night): 10 minutes Step 5: Let my old QHY8 cam and the scope cool down: 1 hour - otherwise i get strong gradients! Total prep time: 1 hour 39 minutes. Obviously, the cable time could be improved massively by training. But even if we could get the cabling time to zero, i'd get only down to 1h24', with the total time being dominated by the cooling of my rig. Open question: As i would not leave my cam outside, there seems no real possibly to cut down significantly on my prep time, even with a small obsy? Or am i doing something wrong? Best, U. P.S.: Getting an expensive cam is right now no good option
  2. Hello guys Can some PLEASE clear this up for me. I want to buy a replacement battery which I will use to power the mount. I have found this but if you look at the picture it says minimum start amperage 5.6amps. I have read in the manual for the eq6 that it needs minimum 2amps. I just don't want to connect something to my mount and blow the circuitry! I know the AH makes no difference but I wasn't sure about this. Please can you clear this up for me http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=201674889046&globalID=EBAY-IT
