10" Lightbridge Rocker Box . . .

Jim's 10" Lightbrdige Rocker box is complete. Note
the "break" on the observer side for changes in eyepiece weights.

Here's a note from Jim about his new rocker box:

"Dennis – 

I received the rockerbox today…it fits great and looks great!  I look forward to getting it outside, but we’re looking at 6-10 inches of snow potential tonight, so I’ll have to wait a couple more days. Thanks again and I’ll let you know how it works out after an evening of observing!


I use a "ball bearing" lazy susan on this size rocker box and telescope.
Just to the left of the ground "foot" is a "friction break" so the
azimuth motion can be controlled.
