No vibration from my ASI1600 fan. My bahtinov mask star test shows perfect sharp diffraction pattern, with no observable difference in fan off or fan on. If he thinks he has any vibration in his 178 he should return it under warranty. As far as that test is concerned i agree with Ray, it would be irrelevant on DSOs and in the real world of lucky planetary imaging where any sus frames are discarded from the video stream. If he wants to do anything about it, four small silicon pads under the mounting screws, would futher isolate the fan. There are no reported vibration problems from any of the Beta testers, who have done a good job in real world testing.

Ray i would like to copy your flat box build.
