http://www.equatorialplatforms.com/A great solution to the need for an equatorial telescope -- AND, it'll let you do some astrophotography without worrying about "field rotation".

This was the first time that I've used my scope under darker skies and the views were amazing! We had a couple of nights of good weather to enjoy the beautiful sights. Thanks again!

"I have a telescope again! Hooray.
Everything fits, it moves well -- no sticking or binding. I could probably cut the rocker box down 4-6in, but I like the height for now. I could also put some lightweight holes into it. But now I just want to get it outside under the stars! I'm so glad I found you and your kit. This will get me back into observing again.
I will stay in touch. maybe you and Linda can make it out here sometime."

A "work in progress", Dave's 10" F6 with premium optics. At this stage I like to put the OTA onto the rocker box check check balance and altitude motions. These are just right.
I need to finish the rocker box bottom/ground board, add the strings and Sky Commander and give the telescope one more run under the stars before packaging.

Just about complete is a 20" F3.3 for Paul near Honolulu, Hawaii. The Hubble Optics mirror, itself, is the heaviest component of the telescope. At this stage, with the sides of the rocker box completed, I like to assemble the telescope to check for fit, balance and motion. This one is "just right"!! Now, on to completing the rocker box bottom, ground board and installing the encoders -- and it'll be time to ship this beauty!!
