Re: Awesome Mount


Call me weird - but I get a bit of a buzz every time I take my 900 out for the night.

I love good and fine machinery and equipment and this certainly falls into that category.

I second the motion of thanks.

I took my AP900 out to the Texas Hill Country over Thanksgiving, got
it set up with my c9.25, camera, rotator, aol unit, and filter wheel
(lots of weight). I decided to see how well that mount tracks, so I
ran PEMPRO while I cooked some good german sausage on the grill. And
guess what? +/- 1 arcsec without PEC. I didn't believe it and ran
it two more times and made sure I was looking at the correct axis.
Still +/- 1 arcsec. Although the moon was almost full, it was a
magical night imaging M1 with an AWESOME mount.

Thanks AP.
