I woke up at 2-30 am to find more sky than cloud so out I went. Did a polar align and set the manual dials and took about 40 minutes of the Spider using the mount unguided and the Nikon at 30 seconds ..May get more tonight..after alignment and pec training..it was fantastic to finally try out the mount ...the new mount is so quiet ..the roof worked perfect and changing the cable anchor points was no big deal...closed up around 5 am very happy indeed...still lots to finish and set up but at least at the moment I have everything functional ...off to town now to see if I can get 20 more sheets of foam and perhaps a genny...and some food.
