A 10" F4 for Siddhesh in Burlington, Vermont...

The 10" F4 "Nova Optics" mirror in its cell on the mirror board.

I make a "custom mirror cover" with all my telescopes.


12/7/20 -- Now that the spider is received and in place,
I've been able to move forward on Siddhesh's 10" F4
strut telescope -- "with" full UTA. Note the 2-speed
Moonlite focuser as well. Now on to testing under the stars...

12/10/20 Siddhesh's 10" F4 OTA is virtually complete.
Note the 2-speed Moonlite focuser, Rigel base and 3-vane
curved-vane spider. The optics are Nova primary and
Antares secondary -- beautiful images!!

12//10/20 The struts are a scant 30" long. A primary dew shield
is included as is a custom made fitted mirror cover.
