New deck and observatory install

Got the deck taken out, and my buddy and his small crew put in an 18 inch round pier with a T base 5 feet deep. The dirt in my hill is super strong and solid, and I'm guessing that pier base isn't moving at all if much at all. Just levelled the J bolts (except he used screws with flat square 3 inch plates on the end. It'll be solid. So, that part is done. Monday they install the actual deck, should be done my tuesday. Wed. my observatory shows up. Can't wait.

New setup

Just took delivery of the new camera setup:

I'll be attaching this rig to my existing ATFF field flattener. The spacing works out perfectly (~56mm). Should slide into my existing MoonLite focusers nicely. Now I just need the Paramount MX and Rob Miller tripod to show up!

tonight 12/27/2010

Clear Skies and good visibility. Have to clear the way so the telescope can wheel out to my deck but it's dusk and I'm pounding food and will get on it. YOOO... I'll be telescoping in an hour or so with NO WORK tomorrow. Visibility is fantastic right now and no wind or even a breeze, perhaps a faint object if I have the patience to drift align.
