|Joe's 14" F4.5 with Park optics is fitted with a shroud from Heather. The |
elasticized material fits snugly -- perfect for those light polluted observing sites..
|Jim's 10" Lightbrdige Rocker box is complete. Note|
the "break" on the observer side for changes in eyepiece weights.
|I use a "ball bearing" lazy susan on this size rocker box and telescope.|
Just to the left of the ground "foot" is a "friction break" so the
azimuth motion can be controlled.

|A 16" kit for Carl in Sunnyvale, California. Carl will come on down to|
the shop while we both "assemble" the kit for his 16" F4.5 telescope.
|A 16" F4.5 from a DobSTUFF kit built by one of our customer|
s in Australia. Here are his comments:
I bought this 16" Dobstuff kit ages ago for my 16" f4.5 Mark Suchting mirror. I finally got around to putting it together. I modified it a little to accept a wire sling. I used extra thick walled aluminum tubes for the struts and extra clamps. I am very pleased with justhow well it all works and can highly recommend Dobstuff Scopes..
|Brian, and his son, in Temple Terrace, Florida, finished a beautiful|
telescope from one of our kits. Note the Easy Transport Telescope,
dew shield and dual finders. The color, I think, is Red Sedona.
A beautiful job!!

|Marty, in Moline, Illinois, needed a set of altitude bearings and rocker box|
sides for his 10" telescope project. The altitude bearings are 20" in diameter.
Visible in the photo, also, are the Teflon bearings and bearing laminate strips.
