Dave's 17.5" F4.5 Truss Telescope Completed . . .

This 17.5" F4.5 truss telescope features a Destiny
Observatory grade 3-vane curved-vane spider, Moonlite
2-speed focuser and 6-point flotation mirror cell
designed and optimized with plop.

Note Dave's nice 8x50 finder and detail of the spider.

The all aluminum 6-point flotation mirror cell. Three
simple collimation thumb knobs it all it takes to
bring the telescope into perfect alignment.

A Denkmeier binoviewer rounds out Dave observing options.
