Re-installing, re-assembling mount

IMG_0751The updated mount arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I’m in the process of re-installing.  Since everything was taken off, I’m taking this opportunity to put everything back on in the neatest fashion I can – paying more attention to cable management, etc.

I’ve reached the point where I’m ready to start polar alignment – just waiting for a clear night.  Initial alignment will be done with PEMPRO, followed by a detailed TPOINT alignment analysis.  It’ll take a couple of clear nights. Tonight was supposed to be one – but the sky is thinly overcast, with the overcast lit up by a bright moon.  I’m hoping it will clear a little later in the evening.

Update: It didn’t.  Going on a week now, still waiting for a clear night for alignment. Frustrating knowing that even when it eventually clears, I’m not ready for imaging.  Oh well.  Remember, the hobby is the process not the results.
