What does one do when they have "time on their hands". Why, build a telescope of course. I'm nearing completion of my personal 10" F6 with a Nova Optics mirror and Antares secondary. The focuser is a 2-speed Moonlite and the spider is a 3-vane curved-vane Destiny. It'll sport a Sky Commander later today.
The telescope to the right is a 10" F4 with Nova Optics mirror as well. Same focuser and spider. The difference is striking -- 20" longer in focal length. This telescope is now "on sale" -- so contact me if interested. Dennis
