Eric Kennedy of NTE Poole Ltd. brought over the all-Aluminium pier extender for the mini-WASP on Sunday.
Today (Tuesday) I have just spent all day completely disassembling the mini-WASP to fit the pier extender and then rebuilding the whole thing again – what a pain!
Several jobs to be done now: 1) Need to redo the polar alignment.
2) Need to carefully collimate both Sky 90s (this could take a LONG time!)
3) Finally, get on with some imaging.
I am really glad I kept the Hyperstar rig going so at least I can continue to do imaging whilst I’m getting this mini-WASP rig sorted.
