Completed today is Brian's 17.5" F4.5 truss telescope. As mentioned in an earlier post, Brian asked me to build a traditional UTA (upper tube assembly) for his telescope. Note the Sky Commander is mounted near the eyepiece on the focuser board. A nice feature....

The primary mirror was refigured by Optical Wave Labs near Sacramento. What started out as a Coulter mirror has ended up as a premium optic with a 0.955 strehl.

Also completed today is a rocker box upgrade for a 16"
Meade Lightbridge telescope for Mike D. in Forest Hills N.Y.
