Nice!

Don't take this the wrong way but..,

(a) Does your Gemini-II actually work?
(b) Was the new manual included in your documentation set?

My understanding is that the software is still being worked on with beta testers at present, sooooooo.., you could understand my being somewhat curious..,

Thanks and regards,

skybsd

Nice mount! Nice to see another person building a GEM themselves. Did you make your clock drives?

Hello,
That is impressive making your own clock drives! How did you cut the gears? What kind of precision were you able to maintain?

Frolinmod, please stand by while I wait for real life to pause for long enough for me to take some shots of that...

How is your RA axle connected to your Dec axle? What is that clamp like part?

Thanks

That's a very professional and stress relieving setup! Someday, in my own observatory, I'm going to make sure mine is also anything but cluttered. I can't stand clutter.
