|I've thought about a scope like this for awhile. Here's a Meade|
fork mount with the mirror box for an 8" F4.
The OTA will be just about 28" long.
Note the space between the forks have been increased with spacers.
|I've made a dew shield as well (L). The stock "trunions" have been replaced |
with altitude bearings to support the new mirror box.
|A Meade Fork or Celestron Fork would work just as well.|
