Foolin' Around with Telescopes . . .

I'm out, in the back yard, for a little observing with my
"new-to-me" CPC-800 and a 10" F4 under construction.

Dave's 16" F4.5 Completed . . .

Dave 16" and dual fan assembly.

All of my telescopes include a fitted mirror cover.

A very fine 16" F4.5 Ostenhowski optic. NICE!!

Moving the telescope around is super easy with these
wheel barrow handles made of solid Oak and stained ebony.

The "red sedona" custom color and black make a
for a great-looking combination.

The focuser is a 2-speed 2" Moonlite. Note Dave Explore
Scientific finder. A nice addition.

The 4-vane curved-vane spider by Destiny.

Movin' Around a Big 16" Telescope . . .

Wheel barrow handles and Dave's 16" F4.5 rocker box.
The tires are 10" pneumatics. The movement is perfect.

With the Red Sedona custom color, the rocker box makes
an imposing presence. Notice Dave's AZ encoder installed.

The wheel-barrow handles are solid oak with ebony stain
and 6 coats of varnish to protect the wood.

Dave's 16" Truss. Gettin' Close...

Yet, to finish the rocker box, but I like to assemble the
telescope to check fit and finish. This telescope is just
right. The "custom color" is red sedona.
