Finally some clear when I can get out, set up and Bino- view of Lunar, grabbed some WL solar just after work as well.

Worth all this ongoing work 😃

Final 12v electrics sort out, plugs soldered on, 
12v Distribution board wired in,
The PSU set up and live.
I now have 2 x 12v (13.1 in reality) on 5mm plugs out of the pier.
No idea what they might be used for as of yet, other than dew heaters for now,
but things always move on, as I have proven with this thread itself.

I have started pondering a push away over the pier to be honest, but that's not for 2022,
the build and fettle never ends does it, even on a simple rectangle of concrete.

I must add how nicely the AZ75 mount sits on the pier, solid as a rock.
This is the testing mount that Rowan have kindly left with me for a while after testing has been completed.
If you want to see my thoughts etc and @Stu we both were testers and have threads in the mount section.
