motor and clutch mounted

I attached the MT-1 motor (and clutch) to the Super Polaris mount this afternoon.

I had to fiddle with the final position a bit to get the gears to mess and be aligned. I had to trim the cover a little to get it to better fit.

At some point, I'll paint these black...

It's frustrating not being to fire it up!

The mount still fits in the old camera bag. So that's good news. And whenever I get the controller, that should fit nicely inside the camera bag's outer pocket!

I am one step closer to driving the telescope. It's going to be so good to just relax at the eyepiece.
