A 6" F5 for Joe in Palos Verdes, California...

Joe's 6" F5 with Kinoptics helical focuser. That's Joe's big
TeleVue 31mm Nagler Type 5 in the focuser -- with an
extra heavy-duty focuser bracket to handle the weight.

A CG5 dovetail mounts the telescope on a myriad of mounts.
Note the standard 4-vane straight-vane spider.

The primary mirror sits on an all Baltic birch mirror cell with
large knobs for easy collimation. Also included is a custom
mirror cover and primary dew shield. Not shown is the
focuser baffle to minimize ambient light.

Detail of the top ring. The spider has been modified to
collimate with easy to manage springs for adjustment.
