Works continues . . .

6-point flotation mirror cell installed on mirror board
(Since this is light mirror, a Baltic birch/aluminium cell works well)

Progress continues on John T's 13.1" telescope with a Coulter mirror. The mirror and secondary has a 96% enhanced coating -- brand new. This is going to make a nice telescope!!

The mirror cell and mirror board from the rear.
Silicone has been applied to the 6-point cell.
The center rear of the mirror is marked with a "donut".
Once the mirror cell has been applied to the mirror the
silicone needs 24-hours to cure. You can see the 3.1" secondary to the lft.
