Completed today is a 17.5" F4.5 for Clay C. in Horseshow Bend, Idaho. The primary is a mirror refigured by "Swayze" with matching secondary. A Sky Commander system is installed, and the telescope uses an "Observatory Grade" Destiny curved-vane spider.

The Primary Mirror has been "center marked" with a "donut"
to aid during collimation.
