12" F4.9 Truss "remake".....
Coming together is a 12" F4.9 for Joe G. in Palos Verdes California. It's a "remake" from a solid tube Orion Intelliscope. Joe asked for a longer "mirror box" so you see a 20" version. Usually these are 12" on scopes like this. It'll be a truss telescope with a Sky Commander, so it's going to look unique!!
The 9-point mirror cell is in place. There will be a black shield in the mirror box to protect the viewer from light and dew.
