Mobile rig

Tonight is the first night of testing the mobile rig for our 2022 Tenerife BASEG trip. I have just started to setup and am waiting for night to fall. The weather is warm and clear and I am on the IMT3b observing patio.

Tonight is about making sure I can take a set of images and guide and that everything works.

First thing to note is on firing out TSX that I need to change the settings for the mount and select usbmodem1442101 and then connect. This did not work the first time and resulted in an error, disconnecting the USB from the 2 port hub and reconnecting fixed the problem.

Ready to image

Took 44 x 300s on M101 and started to pack up at 3:08 when it was getting light which I could see on the SQM.

The next morning zzzzzz
