I'm soon to set up a 1 man corp with an alt to generate a lkittle extra isk.

My plan is to set up 1 or 2 small caldari POss i low sec to harvest moon minerals.

I understand that turning the moon mins into more complex materials is more profitable.

Could anyone suggst what POSs I should use for each task, what setups I should use to be the most efficient, and what is the most effective way of selling my products?

Thanks Very Happy

I would suggest using a large tower with lots of defenses since a pos run by 1 man corp will find the pos under attack if the locals realize its a 1 man corp. A large tower will be able to have enough grid and cpu to handle it. The are a number of spreadsheets in the stickies at the top of the page.

a few issues:

a small tower wont be strong enough to hold of any attack.

caldari towers are only good for research (basicly).

the moons with materials that are profitable are almost all taken.

the profitable moons that aint taken will be soon.

DO THE MATH, if you're not sure how profitable (ie you asked if doing complex reactions are better), figure it out first. and no, dont just ask us, do your own math, search first.
there's plenty of threads about all this already.
check the resource sticky at the top of the forum.
then use eve-search
if u need any specific answers (like how many units the miners drop) check "show info" in-game, then ask in the in-game help channel. THEN ask here.

good luck. Cool

Make it a research caldari research pos in hi-sec. Unless your other characters are in major badasses with friends, you won't be able to defend a tower (let alone a small) in low sec.

You probably aren't goin to find anything but r8s. There will be plenty that noone is mining. They are fairly worthless without a corresponding r16.

I think with a caldari small research pos you could do 2 advanced and 1 mobile lab........
