Here are front and rear view piccies of the mini-WASP array at the New Forest Observatory.

The two scopes with the black lens covers are TS 80mm triplet APOs. The pale lens cover is on the Sky 90. The Gold lens cover is on the Megrez 80mm guide scope.

Looking round the back you can see the 3 Robofocus units and the filter-wheel on the Sky 90. The Sky 90 Robofocus directly drives the focus shaft. On the TS 80s I have run a belt drive from the Robofocus to the 10:1 focus knob of the TS 80 for very fine focus control. The Aluminium plate in the roof of the dome holds the electronic compass which is part of the dome rotator feedback circuit.

All ready to grab this winter's goodies - so of course it is pouring with rain at the moment :shock:
