A Couple of Photos . . .

Wyatt's 10" with ETT. Here he's "stacked" the top ring for
easy transport and storage. 

Blake, in Fort Collins, coloradio, finishes staining his 10" kit. A neat color.

Chris' 17.5" truss. A remake of his earlier and heavier traditional
truss. The UTA is from the original telescope with some mods.


A custom mirror cell, mirror cover and dew shield for this
beautiful telescope. The optics are outstanding!!!

The 17.5" telescope sits on an all aluminum 6-point
flotation mirror cell designed and optimized with Plop.

The original UTA had "silver" struts and a slightly "misplaced" focuser.
I use Moonlite truss components throughout....

Chris' 17.5" F4.5 -- Getting Close to Completion . . .

With the altitude bearings installed, the rocker box is taking shape.

A "big" telescope. Chris'  OTA is a beauty. The optics
are "outa sight"!!

The mirror box with custom cover. Iuse Moonlite truss components.

The upper tube assembly just needs the baffles re-installed.
