Hi Ray

if you check out the equipment page you will see it’s fitted 90degrees to the scope by necessity 

it’s a small scope and almost impossible to balance if rotated 90degrees with a huge 7-position 2” wheel hanging off to one side. Which is what you would have to do in order to rotate the sensor as ZWO don’t allow you to connect the camera to the wheel at 90degrees I am sad to say. 

the only logical way to fit it was in line with such a small light compact scope as it does not have enough mass to counteract a massive overhang to one side.

Thanks Steve, not what I was expecting. :( This time you really excelled yourself, 89 degrees out! Still, when winter comes it should make a great composition out of M42 and the Horsehead.

Cheers

I will turn the scope on and check this evening for you :)

Thanks for pointing this out as I thought I had added it to the website

Ray, thank you for your kindness.
I asked a question because there is no display of Pier6's Camera Position Angle on the Roboscopes website.
I think the Roboscopes staff will surely have an answer, so I think it's okay to wait for it.

Again thank you to your kindness.

Hi, 

I made an assumption that it would be in landscape and submitted a short test job to gauge what exposure times might be needed on a complete job. I assume that it has been completed having disappeared from the job queue several days ago, I'm just waiting for the data. If you do not get a reply in the meantime, then as soon as I receive my data I will let you know.

Cheers, 

Ray
