Tom's 16" F4.5 Truss - Completed . . .

This nice truss telescope, for Tom in Salt Lake City, Utah, sports
 a 2-speed Moonlite focuser, 4-vane curved-vane spider
and wheel barrow handles.

The 16" primary sits on a 6-point mirror cell designed and optimized
with Plop. The telescope is easy to move around with the wheel barrow handles.

I custom, fitted, mirror cover protects the primary during
storage and transport.
