Re: Recommendation for Observatory PC
Here is a shot of my rig – the AP-1200 and RCOS truss scope are covered up, inside my own “climate controlled” nylon tarp (porch swing cover, actually). Gives a good view of the “beverage table” I use for portability. Laptop well protected but easily usable, inside its LapDome. You can even keep a few reference charts and papers inside, with it – as well as keeping your eyepieces dew free and warmed by the laptop exhaust fan, until you choose another one, from your kit.
