16" F4.5 Truss Telescope for Hitesh D.
in Santa Clara California.

for Hitesh D in Santa Clara California is virtually complete. The primary and secondary are 1/16-wave JMI optics. The spider is an observatory grade Destiny curved-vane. The primary mirror sits on an 18-point flotation all aluminum mirror cell optimized with Plop.
An interesting feature is the Moonlite filter-slide seen under the Moonlite 2" 2-speed focuser. A Sky Commander digital setting circle is also installed.
