Crispyn, from Tuscon, Arizona
and his 10" F5 Telescope
"Hi Dennis,  I promised you I would send a photo of my completed telescope and here it is! Complete with a dobstuff 6 point mirror cell, a destiny curved spider, a 10 inch f5 mirror refigured by Steve Dodds at Nova Optical, and a kineoptics HC-2 focuser.

I am yet to take it out under the stars but from what I've seen just testing everything out, it looks nice and crisp. Your mirror cell works great and I haven't had any trouble with it. Surprisingly, the whole telescope is fairly light, probably in the realm of 50 pounds or so. I can remove the tube from the mirror box for easier transportation which is something I absolutely needed.

Looking forward to first light!
