First Light ( for me anyway )

Essex Stargazer

Recommended Posts

Managed to erect my recently acquired used Mead LX90

Went through the set up all OK , pointed it north , it then slewd to the first star OK then the second OK , Did 2 minor adjustments with the hand controller

But it was only 9.15 PM and still very light ( in a light polluted area )

Put the scope cover on and went indoors for a brew ;)

Back out at 11.00pm to find a bank of high white cloud rolling in :icon_scratch:

left the scope out till 01.30 but still cloudy , so in it came and off to bed

At least I know it works now :hello2:

So it was my first play with it re assembling , working the handset , using the finder scope etc

Sorry to ramble , just needed to tell someone :)
