Erik's 13.1" F4.5 Virtually Complete . . .

Virtually complete is Erik's 13.1" F4.5 parallel strut telescope.
Note the "strings" for rigidity. The struts have been powder coated.
The 13.1" Primary mirror sits on an all aluminum 6-point flotation
mirror cell -- optimized with Plop.

The focuser is a 2-speed 2" crayford my Moonlite, a 3-van e, curved-vane
spider by Destiny. Note the red-dot finder on the upper strut.
All my "remake" and new telescopes come with a custom mirror cover
(lower right). The primary has a new 98% enhanced coating
and is center-marked for easy collimation.
