Automation

May 7, 2019

Nothing but rain for over 3 weeks now.  Rae daytime sunshine has allowed me to start to do solar imaging.

I had decent data acquisition.  Automation scripts v5 built and deployed.  Startup sequencing automation in place and working.  Shutdown automation is copying my data back to another computer inside my house, parking the telescope and closing the roof. Finally automation will shut everything else running off.

Paramount MX+ First Light!  Locked everything down.  Powered everything up.  I Iove this mount!  I was not able to get a PoleMaster Polar Alignment because i need to spin the pier a little.   Next time I'll get it.  With 3 weights I couldn't counter-balance the mount with my WO81 piggybacked so that has been removed until I put the additional counterweight on.
