Are you down there? There is a rocket launch coming up the 30th of a Delta Heavy out of Vandenberg that should be great to see down baja way. It is the last of the class and the largest thrust in the world right now. 21 million pounds. I was in Vandenberg Wednesday when they scrubbed it for the 4th time in a week. Bummer!Your friends tracker is a Zome. They are mostly used for water pumping on farms and ranches because they need no electricity to track.I use them very occasionally and their strong points in simplicity and reliability are great. Their downfall for offgrid is they do not go back to east until the next morning when the sun warms the gas, they miss early sun. In baja they are fine but in colder climes this is an issue with the design. They also are not really a dual axis as their track does not change in height. It is an approximation. Still for Offgrid they are fine. It is harder to get alot of solar on them also.
