|Tom's short focus telescope is a dream to use. Easy to manage, easy|
to setup and move around The struts are only 42" long in total
Note the eyepiece tray in the front of the rocker box.
|The altitude bearings are 21" in diameter. When changing eyepieces the|
telescope stays in position. Note the dew shield.
|The 6-point flotation mirror cell design and optimized|
with Plop. The struts are all black powder coated.
|A 3-vane curved-vane spider and Moonlite 2-speed focuser..|
|There are two clamps for Tom's Telrad. Note the sliding 1.25#|
counterweight just in case it's needed for different eyepieces.

using a 17mm Nagler and Nikon point 'n shoot camera.
Not too bad!!!!
