That's an awesome build Josh. Those videos on FB are pretty cool.
I see now how important it was to go up high. That red dust at ground level would be an issue in the long run to stay on top of.

I can imagine quite a few people seeing that and wondering WTF? Spread a rumour that it's an ASIO spy station keeping an eye on China's Mars mission.

Congratulations on an amazing project, you have certainly set the mark for the top position of amateur observatory construction

Mike

Thanks for writing Mike, always find your comments entertaining yeah the ladder didn't fall off haha and the winch worked well.

Mike

Thanks Mike, high praise indeed. funny you say that, about 10 minutes after it went up, and the crane had left, I stood there and thought... yes, its pretty tall
