For those of you who may have a 6-pole truss, or even one of my 3-pole strut telescopes -- here's a great idea for the use of a shroud. See Don's comments and photos:
I bought one of your 6 pole strut kits a few years ago. I can't remember if I showed you my solution for the 6 pole shroud. I drilled small holes in the center of the pole support block and in the upper ring and inserted a fiberglass tent pole between each set of struts. The tent poles can be cut to any length needed. The tent poles provides support for a shroud to prevent it from falling into the light path. I used a small hula hoop around the center of the telescope to support the very light tent poles.
I thought you might be interested to show others that a shroud will fit nicely. I bought my shroud from Heather's Shrouds online.
