Ordered this OTA in april 2016 after looking at it at NEAF in 2016. 6-8-2017....it has arrived. Now to get it up and running.
One hangup....literally are control cables for mounts. As you can see on my equipment page even Paramount and Astophysics mounts are challenged to provide the passageway for 6 to 10 cables. I have spoken to several successful remote imagers and this problem can be addressed/simplified by running a 12 volt power line thought the mount and a single ethernet communication line. Using a mini/micro PC and a power distribution hub the majorigy of communication/power lines are out of the way of entanglement .....except for the camera rotator mechanism.
