|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.
