10" for Dayton is Complete . . .

10" F4.7 for Dayton in Glenpool, Oklahoma is now complete.

The final touches on the "mirror box" include a primary dew shield
and the "Dobstuff Plaque"

Here's the detail of the focuser baffle and secondary holder (and spacing)
The "edges" of the secondary mirror have been painted flat black..

And, the top ring with the Telrad in place.

I always include a small sliding counterweight to adjust for different size and
weight eyepieces. Most of the time it is set and forgotten.
