Also, through broken clouds last night, I was able to test my 'parked' mount. I am happy to report that starting from 'parked position,' my mount immediately was on target and I was able to go to 4 different objects before the clouds consolidated. I am definitely going to love having this observatory!!!

How long do you have it on...?
I run mine 24/7 but on either 3 hours on then 3 hours off OR on a 6 hour cycle..the 3 hour seems (?) to work better...
Mine will not function down below about 45 degrees or so...therefore it just does not get used in the late fall thru winter...

Most if not all are gravity drain, I assume you have to have the drain on a decline if this is the case. I can drill a hole in one of the PODs for drainage.

For me, I looked for one that was as tall as the bay I have a shelf in. So the dehumidifier fit underneath the shelf. I then used a 3/4" hole saw and cut out a small hole near the bottom of the bay, ran the garden hose through the hole then through my deck. I also used a 3/4" o-ring for a nice fit between the hose and hole. My dehumidifier runs at 40% on/off mode.
