Can you see me from there? I just shot you a peace sign!
Could you have a more obscure hobby?
Packed away is a beautiful 6" reflector with the most amazing newtonian mount. (Heavy enough to easily take a 10" scope.
I have not had it set up in years, (I do now understand why I never dated as a teenager.)
The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.
8" Optical Craftsmen Newtonian and a 4" Meade SCT.
10" f5 Newt on an equatorial mount, Gerry built, sorry no pic.
Did you make the mirror too or just the optical tube?
I'd love to try making my own.
No scope to show, another hobby sidelined until the kids are off on their own and there is more free time. I'm in a reasonably dark spot too.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
