Great article. Wouldn't mind reading an expanded version someday!

You are a talented mechanic. Enjoy your mount and DSC's.

Thank you all. Gary Seronik got interested as well so maybe it will be published in S&T one day - unless copyright issues will prevent it. Anyway I decided to publish the article here to make it available. It is just a tiny price for all the inspiration I have got on cloudynights
