Complete is a 10" F4.7 OTA for Diana in Bloomington, Delaware.
Note the Easy Transport Telescope (ETT) option. The ETT makes
the struts 1/2 as long while introducing the intermediate ring for rigidity.

The OTA, including the mirror cover, only weighs 22.5#.

Diana's 10" rocker box is taking shape. This
telescope will have a Sky Commander installed.
