So, I'm gearing up for the Winter Star Party, it's less than two weeks away! A friend on Facebook tells me this morning he's thinking hard about a Paramount MyT, and asked if he could watch me set it up at the star party. I did this for a couple other customers just last new moon and they were up and going on their own the next night with their own Paramounts. There's just no substitute for seeing it hands on.
So, here's my offer. Every clear night at WSP, if you find the Bisque "booth" by 5 p.m. I will tear down (I'm not going to start over each night if there are no "takers"<g>) and setup the MYT complete with optic while you watch and ask questions (yes, I'm crazy I know<g>). I'll show you how I do my polar alignment, get focus and Image Link, and do a TPoint run. I hadn't planned to guide with the MYT (it has an excellent PEC table loaded), but I'll stick a guider on and walk through the process of calibration and successful guiding for anyone who wants to watch, whether you already have a Paramount or not.
I will have all three Paramount models there on site too, so you can see the Paramount ME II and Paramount MX+ in action as well.
Fingers crossed for clear skies!
