Good Progress on Rodger's 6" Telescope...

A bit oversized altitude bearings coming together.
These will make for a smooth motion and will
tend to stay in place when changing eyepieces.

The 6" mirror is so light, I needed to add a bit of weight to
the rear-end of the telescope. Removable 1.25# weights
do the trick. They are NOT connected to the mirror cell.
