So.....my whole set up ....cge pro mount, 2 mallincams, guider, video switcher, electric focuser....has been giving me electric shocks....tingles when i touch anything.

This thread got me worried...

Had an electrical engineer here today...he also operates an observatory....he tested my house circuit....and.... I have no earth..anywhere.

He said its very dangerous
Told me to always wear rubber shoes at the scope ....even when the earth situation is fixed.
