10" F8.9 for Sheldon -- 99.9% Complete . . .

Sheldon's 10" f8.9 is virtually complete. Another tiny task and we're
done!! Packing and shipping will come next.

His beautiful mirror sits on a 6-point mirror cell
designed and optimized with Plop.

A Sky Commander system and full 24" primary mirror dew shield.

The focuser is a 2-speed GSO, 3-vane, curved-vane spider
and focuser baffle in place. The 8-tube truss is perfect for this long focus telescope.
