My personal 13.1" F4.5 telescope.

I've just re-assembled my personal telescope after receiving the refigured primary mirror from Optical Wave Labs. Cary did a great job on the mirror and coated it with a 96% enhanced coating.

This is a 13.1" F4.5 is 1.5" thick primary that started out as a "Discovery" mirror.

Here the scope is setup at 7:45 p.m. for an evening of observing from my back yard in Palm Desert, CA.

(Once it gets real dark, I'll have to remember the pool is there. It is a moon-less night!)
