    Default New set up in Mountain Home, TX

    I'm just getting back from Mountain home, Texas from my remote observatory (Kerrville) The image shows three telescope mounted on a Paramount MEII mount, Meade 14" F8 with a QSI660 , A TOA150 F7.2 with a FLI16803 and a Meade 80mm F6 with a osc ZWO1600. Testing will soon follow from New Jersey.

    Bob I'll be reaching out to you in the next month or so after I finish testing LOL.

    Thanks for looking at my set up,
    Joe

    I call the one on the Left "The Daedalus" and the one on the right " Prometheus" as for the one in the middle call me what you want but don't call me late for dinner 🤣

    The Daedalus has a 16" truss tube F8 which will be used mainly for planetary and on the side is attached a TS-130 F5 native on top of the 130 is a 80 mm Meade F6 will be used for guiding.

    The Prometheus has a Meade 14" F 5.6 with a QSI 660 and in the side is a TOA-150 with a FLI-16803 both have Off access guiding.

    Soon to come will be a MX+ with a 14" Planewave and a FLI-16200

    Fun Fun Fun

    Hi Joe, (or should I call you Hercules - holding the Pillars of Bisque together?)

    What a beautiful and elegant observatory! It seems a long time coming to this stage, too. And the weather has been pretty seriously awful in Texas this past winter. Have you begun regular observing yet?

    Best of luck to you, Joe.

    Hello Dick,

    The weather has been a killer this winter I'm talking about two weeks of clouds with one clear night over and over.
