With terrible weather conditions and not being able to use my scope for over a month, I decided to give the dome a fresh coat. Sadly, 4hrs after my paint job it rained, hopefully it was dried enough... My next job is to improve the base sealing since some water seems to seap in after heavy rain. I am thinking of trying roofing cement around the outside edges. It would be nice to see Jupiter at least once more under above average seeing before it's gone for the season. Hope you have decent skies


PS: My neighbor apparently cannot appreciate my dome and put up a fence...
