|Jerry's 12.5" String-Strut. Note the Telrad, Sky Commander and|
Moonlite 2-speed 2" crayford focuser. The DEC and AZ motions
are just right!! Jerry lives in Birmingham, Alabama.
|Detail of the Destiny 3-vane curved-vane spider. A Kendrick dew|
solution is installed on the secondary. Not shown is the "focuser
baffle" opposite the focuser.
|The beautiful 12.5" mirror is center marked with a "donut"|
for easy collimation. Note the Easy Transport Telescope
(ETT) intermediate ring and mirror cover.
|A dual-fan sits in back of the 6-point mirror cell. I always|
use oversized knobs for collimation and "feet" sothe
telescope can be stood upright more safely.
