The hazards of pursuing improvements

The past few nights have produced very transparent skies but unfortunately constant patches of cloud have prevented any useful long exposure photography. Perhaps just as well for I have just succeeded in causing a major failure to the electronics controlling my mount so am now back in repair mode until the problem is found and remedied. This has occurred as a result of experimenting with additional timer circuits to give me more control over the length of the guiding pulses on the output of the software. Whether this will ultimately prove beneficial (providing it ever works) remains to be seen but at the moment it is proving to be a troublesome exercise as is the saga of my spider re-building efforts....nothing ventured, nothing gained !
