Working on a 300+ Mosaic on my new dual imaging rig. Excited to start tearing through it now that I've got both scopes up running on the 1100 mount!

Beautiful setup, and what a stunning mosaic that's going to make!

Thanks all!

It's been five years since I set out to image the cosmos and I fear I may be lost in it's grasp! It's been a journey to the equipment to do it, but worth the effort!

I am also wondering how much that rig weighs? And leave it out in the rain? I think not!

No rain for sure. It all packs into my Suburu Outback. Probably close to 400lbs for just the telescopes, mount, and cameras. I live in a red zone (light pollution) so it's a 1.2 hour drive to a dark site for me every time I want to image LRGB. I can do Hydrogen from my driveway in the red zone with 3nm filters. :)

At 400lbs I am sure you can not set that up by yourself!?!

You do get some really good images!!

I do, every time. I mean it's 400lbs all assembled. It breaks down into manageable pieces. And thank you!

Awesome! On both.

Side question. Ice fishing tent? A buddy of mine uses an ice fishing tent when they go to star parties and what not. Apparently they are great at keeping light out, which also means they are great at keeping light in, so he runs whatever he needs inside without bothering others near him.

Yep, Ice Fishing tent. It's a game changer. I use a Mr. Heater Little Buddy with a built in carbon monoxide detector. The Clam has vents in the top and the two work perfectly to keep the inside a balmy 50-60 degrees when it's below freezing outside!

I went from not being able to tolerate anything below 40 outside to going even when it's in the single digits. It also helps with the light when you have Observers on the field.
