New Astronomy Accessories

I ordered a few parts from Orion today. I’ve got an EQ-1 mount, the EQ-1M electronic drive, and the 1/4″-20 adapter needed to finally get a tracking platform for my PST. I haven’t been able to do any decent imaging because the adjustment capabilities of the standard tripod is difficult and inacurate. It’s great for visual work, but the LPI’s increased resolution makes it much more difficult to keep it centered.

I also picked up the large aluminum accessory case that I’ve been needing for a while now. I’ve got too many eyepieces and other accessories and just putting them all in a box isn’t the best thing to do.

  1. The case is a good move, it takes a few trips to setup, cutting down on that helps a lot. Besides probably easier to carry on a bike.
