What do I need to do to set up the observatory?

OK, my Paramount is set in position in the dome.

What do I need to do? I will be using Voyager Advanced to run the observatory and mount.

Here is what I have:

MaxDome II

Moonlight focuser

Fishcamp guider


12V dew heater controller

All of the software that came with the MX – do I need The Dome Add-On?


Use a wide temp USB hub through the mount?

Is there 5V and 12V at the “control desk” on the mount, or is additional wiring needed?



I use the Dome Add-on. It works well. I’ve just start setting up my remote kit as well.
