Last night I completed installing my NEQ6 mount and a 102mm refractor in the observatory. Unfortunately a couple of AC adapters have gone missing including the one for my powered USB3 hub so I couldn’t fire up the telescope, but tonight will be first light! While the 102mm isn’t the telescope I plan to use in the observatory it’s a lot easier to take on and off the mount than the 254mm reflector! Looks like clear skies for the rest of the week so rapid progress will be made from here hopefully!

UPDATE: Windy and cloudy tonight alas.
