Simple question; do you ever feel nervous having your observatory open all night with thousands of dollars/pounds worth of kit out in the open?
I had my first clear night last night with my new Observatory and I imaged until 1am and then went to bed. I was desperate to keep it going while asleep but just couldn't bring myself to do it.
I have a number of security cameras, but I can't set the alarm if the telescope is going to be moving and I don't want security lights coming on. Combined with this, I have all kinds of night critters in my paddock that the observatory is in that a) will trigger sensors and b) I do not wish to harm.
Does this problem ring a bell with anyone and has anyone got any thoughts on measures one can take to at least reduce risk.
All I want is to be able be woken if some idiot decides to enter my observatory....
