tried to calibrate dome rotation. instructions inadequate. phoned FLO. told to flip the magnet, viola. door lets in lots of water when it rains, door not sealed. a tip in the instructions would be to face the door 180 degrees from the prevailing wind and rain. can you cure water ingress? A good sturdy dome and rotation motor. very pleased with set up of 14 inch telescope and CGXL mount. lots of room. erected dome on concrete slab on top of block shed. I have one accessory bay which is sufficient, two would be a waste as I control everything remotely. manual shutter opening and closing works fine, as I think that a shutter drive is far too expensive. the dome was delivered on two pallets costing £300. are you really serious. max cost of pallets 50euros.
