Only been a imaging a few months so still building up my gear.

Skywatcher EQ6R-Pro, Skywatcher Evostar 72ED, Altair MG32 Guide Scope Imaging Camera, Altair Astro 183M Pro, QHY5-II-M Guiding Camera, Starlight XPress SXUFW-1S Filter Wheel, Altair CCD LRGB Filters, Baader Ha/OIII/SII Filters.

Been working on mounting the mini PC and other control modules on the rig this weekend.

Still some to do. It might be obvious but the guide camera and filter wheel have no usb cables! There aren't enough USB sockets in the mini PC. Have a photography cheese board coming tomorrow to mount the USB hub on top of the scope. Also have a 12v 10amp power supply coming to power the DeepSkyDad mini 12v distibution box.

Like most of my projects, a work in progress ?

First time set up for DS since the end of Astro Dark at the end of last season. Also the first time setting up the rig with the new tube. Strangely all the software connected and the mount is balanced. However I can see me in cable tie heaven tomorrow when it's raining. LOL
