16" F4.5 for Hitesh in Santa Clara California.

Work continues on Hitesh's 16" F4.5 telescope. The truss OTA is completed. Note that the wood mirror cover is still in the varnish-drying stage and not installed. The removable dew shield is to the right of the photo.

Detail of the top ring, Moonlite 2-speed 2" focuser
and Filter Slide.

Note the "filter slide" under the Moonlite focuser. This allows up to 3 filters to be installed and swing into the field-of-view anytime the observer wishes to use one. The secondary hasn't been installed as yet.
