“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
Quote:What do you use to charge up those batteries? Trickle, or can they be charged in a car while driving? When I go to the mountains with my scope, I won't have access to 110v for a wall charger so being able to charge off my cars 12v system is important.
Quote:I dunno about draw, but I do know that I needed a bigger battery. For remote site use, I also use solar recharging (solar panels and a charge regulator).Regards,Jim
