Refractor - First Full Assembly

Postby justanotherpete » 05 Dec 2013, 20:30

Pictures of the first full assembly of the 7.125", F6.2 refractor & alt-az mount I've been building since May. Managed to get a focused image of a neighbours house today (yippee!) but still have the final collimation to do (hopefully this weekend / next week)...

Looks very professional Pete. Everything looks like it has been done to a very high standard! Cant wait to have a look through it when its collimated.
Well done.
