Phillips' 8" an Interesting Fix ....

I initially mounted Phillips spider on "top" of the top ring only to find
the secondary mirror was unable to come directly under the focuser.
I need "more length" along the optical axis.

I remounted the spider "under" the ring and voila!!  I was able to
bring the secondary holder and focuser into alignment.

(note the red laser collimator dot)

One issue was the placement of the spider vane. A "fix" took
care of that issue. Looking and working great!!
