|Sheldon's 10" f8.9 is virtually complete. Another tiny task and we're|
done!! Packing and shipping will come next.
|His beautiful mirror sits on a 6-point mirror cell|
designed and optimized with Plop.
|A Sky Commander system and full 24" primary mirror dew shield.|
|The focuser is a 2-speed GSO, 3-vane, curved-vane spider|
and focuser baffle in place. The 8-tube truss is perfect for this long focus telescope.

|An F8.9 (89") focal length makes for an imposing long focus|
telescope. Here's Sheldon's telescope is nearing completion.
|I'll add a complete Sky Commander digital setting circle to Sheldon's telescope.|
A focuser baffle and primary dew shield need to be completed.
