Mirror box made for Hitesh's 16" telescope.
Hitesh lives in Santa Clara California.

Construction continues on Hitesh's 16" F4.5 telescope.  The black "Truss blocks" are on the top ring. The removable dew shield is in place

16" F4.5 mirror and 18-point flotation mirror cell for
Hitesh's telescope.

This is the 18-point mirror cell before  being attached to the rear of the mirror. You can see the black "dot" in the center of the mirror so the cell can be aligned correctly. The blue masking tape holds the cell components in place and will be removed. The mirror cell has  been optimized  with Plop and is made from 1/4" aluminum plate.
