Re: Encoder performance during recent sub-zero nights

Roland Christen

The mounts in my observatory performed normally at -10F. I monitored the encoders during that time and they worked fine. I don't know what the lowest temperature might be where they would stop working. I have two mounts in the observatory and both of them worked normally. No issues with the encoders on either mount.

Hi Roland, 

Did you have any issues with the encoder performance during any of the recent very cold nights? I know you use the standard temperature encoders, and it seems the recent arctic blast would have provided a good acid test for their limits.
