Well, zero progress toweards putting a shed over this, but I have found that even though I need to break everything down to carry it out 25M away where I was cheating before and simply brute force hauling the whole kit (Scope, cam, mount, tripod etc) out in front of my garage, it is taking less time to set up as the polar alignment is so much quicker. Octans is ALWAYS visible via the Polemaster software as soon as it is dark enough instead of trying to get the tripod aligned the same and spending time hunting around for Octans.
