A nice note from Nick about his 14" telescope and our recent visit together:
I kept the telescope set up just in case, and indeed the clouds cleared for a short time and I gotta say Jupiter was amazing! Whereas before it was an endless fine turning of the focuser just to think you can see the red lines "pretty well", now I saw deep colors and more detail than ever before with little effort on the focuser! It was too late for Saturn from my vantage point, but I felt like I was getting the full benefit of the telescope and absolutely loved it. It truly made all the difference having you look at it and fix it, so thank you again!
|Yuanyi's 8" F6 telescope has wonderful optics,|
straight vane spider and Moonlite focuser.
|Yuanyi asked me to leave the wood "unfinished" so he|
can apply the color and varnish himself.
|The entire telescope, weighing 48#, fits into|
a 20"x20'x25" box for shipping.
