I love this setup.. "Observatory in a Box". I have the same idea and you executed it beautifully!
Cheers!

Thank you, there is still room for improvement on this design. I have many ideas but at the moment this one is there to stay for a while now.

thanks.
I do not have a build thread for this particular version, if you are interested in the first one then you can head over to

Between the two, I learned a lot about wood working.

I live in southern germany and this is my backyard observatory located in my very small garden. It is surrounded by small houses and severe lightpollution. I have a small view from east to west, the north is covered from my house and the south from a neighbour. Clear nights are rare in germany, so I decided to place a EQ8 there so I can use nights beside weekends. The scope runs mostly unattended in the night. The mount and the tripod are out the year around covered with a grill cover. Scope and camera stay inside.
With the progress of INDI and CCDCiel I switched from Windows (ASCOM) to Linux (INDI) in 2018.

Current Equipment:
- 300/1200mm newton named CA300
- ZWO ASI183 camera with ASI 31mm filter wheel
- TS off-axis guider with ZWO ASI120
- Skywatcher EQ8 with tripod
- Motorfocus DIY Arduino ASCOM Focuser Pro
- EQMOD EQDirect cable
- Adjustable LED-flatfieldbox (homemade)
- Tuxedo Infinity linux laptop

Current Software:
- Linux Mint 19
- INDIlib (EQMOD, ASI Driver, ASI Filterwheel Driver , Moonlite Driver)
- INDIStarter, PHD-Guiding, SkyCharts, CCDCiel

my on demand "Observatory"


CA300 on EQ8 Mount

I managed it to have only one power cable (12V) and one USB-cable to the scope. The white box screwed to the mount distributes power.


The flatfield-box consists of led stripes and a pvc difusor. It is adjustable.
On top there is a 7-Port USB3.0 Hub. The small white box below contains the electronics of the motofocus and distributes power for the scopes diagonal heater and the ASI 183.

The lens is a 100-400 f/4-5.6 II, great lens. I have a 500 f/4 I am going to to, but I wanted to make sure I had everything dialed in before using that one.
