Quick and final update for the RA assembly. I’ve already started working on Declination parts and hopefully I will start putting the Declination assembly together. The toughest part (the shaft) is done – I am anxious to have everything ready for when the optics get here.
But unfortunately, the winter is already here and I am not sure how fast I will be able to work on the observatory. The pier is done and I just completed the four footings. Next week-end I should be able to start working on the structure, finally.
Back to the mounting – I’ve finalized the RA assembly by installing the gear cover. This gives the mount a nice finishing touch. At this point I just need to do some final wiring for the motor and to install the motor/worm assembly… after which I could be tracking!
