The shape is because the heater was bent and attached to the back of the conical mirror. I took the picture while I was cleaning the optic so I detached it, than decided to left this way since I am not going to heat the main mirror in any case and this way the air flow from the fans has better cooling effect on the mirror itself!

Hello Marco,


Welcome back!


Great photo and great equipment...looking forward to some amazing Coonabarabran photos!


I was at Coonabarabran for three nights imaging in October....my first visit there in 5 years.
I drove past your dome and wondered what you were up to these days.


Happy imaging!


Ross.

Hi Marco,

Great first light! Say, I'm pretty sure I now own (for many years actually) the TEC180 that used to sit on your mount...

Thank you Ross, I was away for a while but I am happy to be back, I was definitely missing deep sky imaging

Hi Peter, thanks. Yes, I believe you have the wonderful 180FL owned by Angus Lau, the former tenant of my observatory. He took amazing pictures with that telescope!
