Recommended Posts

Hoping to try this out for the first time tonight.

Options to mount 2 retractable patio windbreaks on choice of 3 sides.  Can be raised or lowered by about 30cm.

Centre pad for Astrotrac pier.  Can move dobsonian about as needed.

Already have an external power supply.

Thanks for looking.

Where did you get the windbreaks from?

Owing to a delivery mishap I ended up with 3 sets of mounting components :) they are 3m long.  There are other options on the website.

First light was a great success.  Galaxies galore! :)

SQM 21.40 - 21.45

Cheers
