All set up for an "under the stars" test, the 12" F5 for Mark L. in Florence, MA. I use adjustable struts to confirm the length of the struts. From this point on, the telescope is about 10-14 days from completion.
10 p.m. Tested. The mirror is great with nice, sharp pin-point images. The struts are 53 1/4" long with plenty of in/out focus on my eyepieces. I use TeleVue 27mm Panoptic, 17mm Nagler, 12mm Nagler and 8.8mm Meade UWA for testing.
