|Now complete is a 12" F4.9 for Carl T. in Ledyard, Connecticut|
|Here, you can see the "tandem finder mount", focuser and focuser baffle.|
The "white wire" is from the secondary dew heater.
|The primary is held in position by a 9-point|
flotation mirror cell. A dew shield is included.
|The "strings" for the strut-telescope add considerable|
rigidity to the OTA. there is no flex evident.

|Carl T's 12" F4.9 strut telescope. With the Altitude Bearings|
affixed, the Rocker Box is taking shape.
|Chris H., from Ridgefield CT., received and setup his 17.5"|
truss telescope. Here's he's affixed "wheel barrow" handles
to more easily move around this BIG telescope!! Nice.
|All set up and ready to go . . .|
|The eyepiece height is about 86" -- so a step-ladder does the trick.|
