Every now and then I get a chance to build some components for someone. In this case, I build two 24" altitude bearings and rocker box sides for Carl in San Diego. These are made from Baltic birch and being sent "unfinished". Carl can stain and/or varnish the wood as needed.

13" by Jim in Xenia Ohio

Here's a very nice telescope completed from one of our kits by Jim V in Xenia Ohio. Among other things, you'll note the Sky Commander below the focuser and a Telrad mounted on dual-clamps just above the focuser. Great job Jim. Thanks for the photos.

10" F4.7 for sale.

A 10" F4.7 with a 1/10th wave Destiny mirror and curved-vane spider currently complete and for sale. The telescope also includes a very nice Antares 2" 2-speed crayford focuser and red-dot finder. Notice, too, the warm custom color of the furniture-grade Baltic birch.
