Quote:Hi All,I would really like to leave my Atlas EQ-G outside on my deck permanently to keep my alignment and park information good. I was going to buy a telegizmos 365 cover for the mount. I am deciding whether it is worth buying the tripod cover as well. The cover would protect the tripod however it would also increase the surface area tremendously and we get some pretty darn strong winds at times...enough to move my grill Also, does anyone have any suggestions for a temporary way to anchor down my tripod? Maybe ratchet straps hooked to the deck railing or something like that? Just looking for some ideas without having to drill the deck.Thanks!
