Time for a mount refurbish

After near impossible guiding results I finally relented and have now pulled out the titan50 from the doghouse. It will be lovingly refurbished then put back into service.

What that means for everyone else is my sacrifice should help offset the universe

well the Titan was refurbished back in August 2021, and as everybody knows the weather has been ......... ever since. i still haven't been keen to remove the temporary setup of the eq8 gclamped to the mount and swap it over to the titan. you need clear skies to drift align. i will get it done soon......

but since then i have had spiders, dead motor battery, leakage issues near the opening and now mosquitoes in plague proportions. i need a nasa space suiot to get out there after dark, when it ever clears
