|John's 16" telescope -- not the "string option" is installed.|
|John G., in Pomona, California -- and his|
16" F4.5 telescope completed from one
of our kits. Nice job John!!
|We're off to Ireland, Scotland and the United Kingdon|
this month. Keep an eye on my travel blog.
|During our trip, we expect to visit Lord Rosse's 72" telescope at Birr Castle.|
The telescope was built in 1845 and is now preserved as an exhibit at the castle.
|Birr Castle, central Ireland.|
|A closer picture of Rosse's 72" telescope.|
|We'll be visiting the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England.|
|We also hope to get to Stonehenge .|

|Tom's 14" Mirror -- all set for mounting the mirror cell.|
|Finding and marking the mirror's center (on the rear).|
|Here, I'm affixing the 6-point flotation mirror cell to the|
mirror with silicone. A hole in the center of the cell
lines up with the center of the mirror -- easy and effective.
