Assemble the mount and scope for first time (15th jan.)
So I finally have it. After unboxing both the mount and the scope, I started reading the manual and put the whole thing together. Even though it doesn't have many parts, it took me a little while but eventually every bit found it's place.
Immediately started practicing how to balance the scope and the counterweights after fitting the finder and an eyepiece. By the way the whole equipment looked like this (although no finder and finderscope on these photos yet)
It went well too so nothing else left but waiting for a clear sky....
