My Heath Robinson

This is it. My "Heath Robinson". Things, screwed on to things, with lots of wires, lots of velcro, lots of batteries, lots of stuff. My first picture didn't have any weights on it. I ran up to the deck and added a weight and did another picture. What am I missing now. ??. My last attempt, I got everything up and running and fell asleep. Woke up with everything covered with dew. This is my second attempt at OIII.
Next spring I will meet Julian in New Mexico and give him lots of stuff. He will have everything wrapped and organized and it won't look like this. He will do a "meridian flip" without leaving his chair. He expects me to do it. :) . I call it a "Hail Mary Flip". :praying: . Isn't this fun.
