After a longish travel, my Mach-1 finally arrived to Poland yesterday and I
was able to set it up in-house on the Baader hardwood tripod. First with
just the cw bar attached to perform initial setup, than added
counterweights and my FSQ106. I must say it is a very nice piece of
hardware, very well machined. I also like the robustness of the electronics
- the way controller and handpad are housed, wires attached etc. Looks a
bit like "military grade" stuff definitely designed for field use :-)
As expected, the sky clouded up and it started to rain, so I have to
postpone any field tests and any real imaging with the new scope.
Nevertheless, I am pretty proud and happy Mach-1 user.
BTW, this is the first Mach-1 in Poland so far :-)
