    ASIGN Observatory II - The complete construction movie

    Finally! Two years of building - 12 hours of rooting around with video editing programs of which I have no clue how to use - and It's done!

    I give you the complete construction of ASIGN Observatory II with a spine-tingling soundtrack.

    WOOT! With the sale of all the photography gear, the EQ8 has now been bought and installed! The new RC12 Carbon fibre truss telescope arrives late Jan to mid Feb.
