Obsy building started !

Recommended Posts

Looking good.

Are you planning on putting anything between the concrete and the pier?

Something like a gasket, or just bolt it together?

Gordon.

I made sure the concrete is very flat and level, so not planned to put a gasket in between

Working on the observatory part today, the raised observation dek is completed, height between the floor and the sliding roof is 2,1 meter now.

I've doubted between stairs and a slope and ended up with a combination at the flat part of the slope i have only 1,74m headroom, so the extra step up is for preventing future headaches 🤕.

I've also placed the door.

Some updates....

The Pocket Powerbox failed on me recently, after some troubleshooting i found that the power connector wasn't good, so i had it soldered off and soldered the cable leads directly on to the PCB

IMG_8050.thumb.JPG.fa3fcb8b63657c5311e1c2720eab7e2d.JPG

That wasn't the only problem unfortunately, i had an active 5 meter USB3 lead + a passive 3 and 1 meter lead running to the USB hub form my laptop in the warm room, but i was getting connection problems, so i've replaced the 5m + 3m  by a 10m powered active cable, had no issues since.

My Canon 750Da camera is upgraded by a ASI1600 and i'm using a ZWO OAG, so no more guidscope.

IMG_8071.thumb.JPG.f93ae47b6a6006e11844df31b8f73f17.JPG

I did piggyback - mount my Canon for future wide field shots.

At the moment i'm still getting used to the ASI 1600 so didn't do much with the Canon yet.

IMG_8233.thumb.JPG.6d05007bd7328a05c554a6e657086dff.JPG

The outside flooring is done (Vietnamese Blue Stone tiles 50x50cm), so no more dirty shoes in the observatory 😇

IMG_8238.thumb.JPG.74571dbebfdcec7512186e9c79da6619.JPG

Finally, i've installed a small electric heater, as the nights are cooling down now, i can begin enjoying having a warm room.

I'm really liking the look of that!

What is the building reflected in the door glass in the first photo? Looks like a border watch tower..... Getting ready to fend off us Brits after Brexit?
