two steps forward

Mounted the finder scope. I really wanted it underneath. No room. No room on version 1 of the barn door tracker...

Tended to some loose ends from the other night. Wanted to tighten the grub on the motor gear. Removed the small bolts and promptly dropped one of the small spring washers. Gone! Damn it!

Then, I found the grub very tiny! Could it be half a mil? Crazy small. Could not properly tighten it.

Bolted everything back up.

Retrieved some Velcro bits from astronomy box gamma. Cut 2" pieces. The hook to the tripod centre pier; the loop to the back of the finished control box.


Weeks later, I found the washer!
