|A "pair" of mirror boxes. A 10" (L) and 16" (R) for Dave and Marc respectively.|
The mirror cover for the 16" is temporary while I finish the custom cover.
|Here, Marc's 16" mirror box is pretty much complete. I just need to finish|
the dew shield. Note the "hooks" on the top -- for the "string-telescope".
The mirror is a 16" F4.5 refigured by Swayze Optical. Nice!!!
|Dave, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina sent along his 10" Royce Conical.|
Here you see it mounted on the mirror board and mirror cell.
Note the mirror cell is NOT larger than the mirror!! Just an optical illusion..
|The conical mirror mount with a single 1/2" nylon bolt, spring and nut.|
For the 10" size, and smaller, the bolt does not protrude through the mirror surface.
