17.5" Truss for Tom almost complete . . .

Tom's 17.5" is just about complete. To be added is the primary mirror
dew shield and the DSC stalk.

A neat feature of this design is the ability to transport, store and assemble
the scope with the mirror box in the rocker box. Without the alt bearings
these two components will "nest" for a smaller package.

Tom asked for a "powered ground board". Here the power connection
attaches to the "power rings" on the top-side of the ground board.

The top of the ground board and  12Vdc "power rings".
I always "sign the ground board" -- not visible unless it is removed
from the telescope for some reason.

The top of the rocker box bottom and power connection.
a 4-channel  "distribution" panel is also
 included with the powered ground.
