David's 17.5" Truss Telescope . . .

The top ring of David's telescope is just about complete. The focuser,
spider and secondary are all in place and line up perfectly. Notice
the Moonlite  blocks for this 8-tube truss OTA
All set for an "under the stars testing", the OTA components are near completion.

The beautiful 17.5" mirror sits on an all aluminum 6-point flotation mirror cell.
Other components include an Observatory grade 3-vane spider
and a 2-speed 2" Moonlite crayford focuser.
