rapid start-up

So to be properly aligned for tonight's event, I set up last night, and did a decent polar alignment. Left the tripod and mount outside, undisturbed.

So then I was able to attach the Optical Tube Assembly atop the super-charged Vixen Super Polaris and be ready to go.

Used a third counterweight to accommodate for the heavy MallinCam Universe. Dew/light shield installed. Cap tether not connected tonight (to avoid snags). Just needed to mount the camera.

OTA setup in backyard but clouds...

That's one shaggy lawn... Don't judge me.
