10" Ultra Nearing Completion . . .

10" Ultra for Manoj in Campbell, California. The focuser is
a Kineoptics helical. The telescope weighs 31-pounds
including mirror cover.

A closer look at the focuser and single-vane, curved-vane
"spider" by Destiny. Note the focuser baffle.
The rear of the telescope. A small counterweight
in the center of the mirror cell helps balance the scope.

The telescope disassembles for "airline carry on"
Those photos will follow.

The mirror is a 10" F4.5 with enhanced coatings.
