A Couple of Concurrent Projects.....


Here is a picture of my new 17.5 at the Black Forest Star Party.  It is held at the Cherry Springs state park south of Coudersport PA.  I received many praises for the design and workmen ship of the scope.  It performs great!  The dark skies help as well.


(Keith lives in Galion, Ohio).

A 16.25" F3.7 telescope for Joe is also coming together. Here
you see the Feathertouch focuser (it will include the SIPS option)
and standard 4-vane straight-vane spider.

The "triangles" for an 18-point flotation mirror cell. The cell is
designed and optimized with Plop.
