Heated Jacket

Postby Aratus » Tue Dec 26, 2017 2:49 pm

Relatives concerned about me being out in freezing temperatures for hours on end have bought me a heated jacket. I haven't had a chance to try it out in earnest yet, but when I do I'll report my experience here. It takes the form of an armless jacket which can be worn under a normal coat. A 7.2v rechargeable battery in a pocket heats 5 heating pads with 3 levels of heat.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.
