Open Astro Tracker kit

So far, I've not had time to do more than look at the parts in the box much less assemble the kit. I'm quite impressed with the quality I see so far, having all the threaded inserts already in place and other details. The kit was very nicely packed and appears to have no damage from being shipped. Very much looking forward to being able to assemble and use the OpenAstroTracker.

Einfach Super

Ich bin mit allem bis jetzt voll und ganz zufrieden und ich muss sagen das ich von der Konstruktion unheimlich begeistert bin. Es ist alles fantastisch durchdacht und der Zusammenbau hat mir unheimlich Spaß gemacht. Einen trockenlauf konnte ich bisher schon machen. Aufgrund des Wetters bin ich aktuell nicht dazu gekommen die Montierung zu testen aber das wird so bald wie möglich nachgeholt.
