Re: Getting hot


Wiggins, Rick
 

Hi Dean,
I had mine in the desert last year when the temps hit 115F. I had it
under the silver scope cover from TeleGizmos. This keeps it relatively
cool as it reflects the heat.
Thanks, Rick

This
was not an issue with my old mount since it was so simple.

I do cover the mount during the day, but it does get hot enough you
can't pick it up. I have recorded temps close to 120 in June
