Observatory 17b 6 months 3 weeks ago #12837


The opening is 105x105 cm.
I found this number by setting up everything on the tripod inside, next to a wall. I then rotated the tripod until I had tested every position, while I released the clutches and moved the scope finding the point reaching the longest from center.

With my gear it's the top - front thumb screw on the finderscope, that is most likely to hit something.
I added ~5 cm clearance for it when the roof is closing and the mount is parked.

I suggest that you do the same. Set it up inside and measure the limit :)

As the powerline adapters will never work with the dew heaters I decided to make a hole for ethernet. I found what I need at a decent price, so that will be the best choice in the long run :)

Post your INDI Setup! 2 weeks 4 days ago #17213

My current setup Is an Oroin EQ-G mount with a f/4.9 native 8" newtonian. I wanted to be able to be remote with it, so I configured a 13A 12v power supply to drive everything. The 12v can be provided by the AC power supply, or by 12v car battery. The DC is fed into a fuse block housed on the leg of the tripod in the grey enclosure. This enclosure also houses an Intel NUC, the brains of the operation. It, of course, runs Linux/INDI, and if I need to, it also has a fully updated kstars/ekos/astrometry and everything else needed to run stand-alone on it so all it would need is a monitor

The scope has been updated with a moonlite focuser, a 60mm guide scope with a ASI290 camera, and the main camera is an ASI1600MC. I also have a cable that allows me to no longer need the hand controller. Everything is then remotely controlled from my office in the house. Wish I would have had this over the winter!

I am using the following INDI pieces; EQMOD, GPSD, WunderGround, Moonlite, Astrometry, ZWO CCD
