|Cameras in place|
I fit the new camera on the scope and got it all in place. I finally did something I should have done years ago - put some tidy wrapping around the camera and other cables. I found some wire wrapping stuff at Fry's and put that on. Why? To make it look cool, and most of all, sometimes when slewing the telescope it will bog down and I'll look over and see that it's trying to strangle itself in it's own cables. Ouch.
I left a large loop in the cable bundle now, so hopefully that problem is minimized. Kind of clear tonight, but terribly twinkly from the winds, and drifting high clouds. Just not very good. So I wait again for a good night to try test run #2 of the camera and new cabling.

I also swapped out some speakers so I now have some great sounding Pandora streaming out there now too!
