Re: Of Mice and Mounts

The Goldenrod gets warm, not hot. I can easily touch it when it’s running.
To mount it, I used the plastic stand-offs included with the Goldenrods and attached them to thin strips of plywood. I then zip tie the plywood strips to the turnbuckles on my portable field pier.

Since the goldenrod gets hot, how do you attach it to the mount?

Ouch! Happened to me TWICE! Once with one of those "red" mounts and then once when a few of the critters got into the OTA of my Planewave 12.5" and down behind the primary and ate EVERYTHING. OMG. What a mess. In both cases the cost of repair was high. And my insurance policy explicitly lists mice under "Not covered for damage by vermin".
