Quote:I have noticed the older the dome got the more the snow stuck. Now I run the heater and a little rotation and the falls off.
Quote:I should wax it but that's to much work. I have to finish washing the house first. This is actualy how this started. We removed 2 bushes from the front of the house.
After the bushes were gone I noticed how dirty the house was there. So I started washing it. Then the clean spot stuck out so I had to wash more. I got bored washing the house so I washed the OBS. My wife commented how nice the OBS looks now as she was loking at the rest of the house I have to wash I need a before picture so you can apperciate the difference.

Quote:Nytecam, I guess I would have to classify it as AP since it almost all remotely used. The rub here I don't normally save the images I only view them on the computer display. The visual observing is done for the solar stuff as there and no cams currently connected to the solar scopes.
