If you are only thinking about moon mining the you first need to find a moon with good enough material to both pay for the fuel bill and still have extra to make profit, which isnít easy around empire, but itís a bit easier out in 0,0.
A small amarr tower can run 2 harvesters and 2 coupling arrays, and thatís it. Then there are only about 60-70 CPU left, which isnít a lot.
Caldary type towers is a bit better with more CPU grid.
Again if you only want to mine then donít bother with bigger towers than small, or the tower will eat the profit away with the fuel use. And since you are planning on setting it in alliance space, then its not a big deal about defense, its will just eat the profit.
2) I cant remember the exact price of the small tower, but its around 100mill I think, so if you only plan to use 400mill then that should cover a small tower.
About mining ice, in my opinion I wouldnt bother about mining Ice for fuel unless you are a big gang, because if you are only 2 of you mining and hauling, then most of your online time would be spend on nothing but ice mining.
3)Depending on what type of material that are at the moon and type of tower the one Moon harvester I and 1 silo/coupling array pr material. But, if you use a small tower, then donít bother with silos, because you most likely wont have enough CPU for it.
4) mostly anchoring lvl1 is needed but I think some structures need lvl2, but its not a big deal.
5) again depending on moon material, from wasting money and up to over 2bill a month.
6) also this depend on the material if you find the really good material then of cause you can install a L tower and defend it like crasy, other vice just forget about the guns, since you are in alliance space.
