    I had reached to a status last night .

    I found something( the red one in pic.) that I thought it may be usable for this time in a retail shop , it looks like a clipper with a 15cm mouth . I got it at 50HKD for each and purchase two of them , just for testing at first . You know everything should be simple and easy to make this time , for me .
    It is now being enhanced like a screwing lifter , with wheels . This is just my first attempt to see if it is really able to lift up the dome , you know the dome and the metal track is very heavy .. . Next step I need to added an metal plate on the track of the dome , it extend out to a distance that it is put over on the lifter screw . And then after that I can be able to test the lifter . But such metal plate seems not easy to make one by me now ... Anyway , lets see it .

    As the thread is approaching 100 posts, I have moved the new observatory discussions to the observatory forum thread below.

    thanks Mandii and look forward to more astrophotos and observatory photos!

    Please feel free to open new threads on your astrophotos in this forum, and discuss any observatory modifications in the new thread here:
