Portable setup
« on: 19:44:13, 08 October, 2016 »
Well after too many beers at Kelling and a barrage of abuse from the team,  it seems I can't quit astro imaging after all  :pirate:
I've sold most of the heavy duty kit and decided to go back to basics (just like the old days  :thumbup: )
So I've got myself an Eq6 and started to put together a little frac for those quick sessions............and of course, a set up that I can take with me wherever I go
Here's a ed102 I'm putting together with everything attached (dew control,  USB hub, etc etc)  all I have to connect is a single usb lead and power  :thumbup:

Good to see you haven't thrown the towel in Mark, life is quite simple, but we insist on making it complicated  :thumbup:
