Various thoughts and activities related to my amateur astronomy interests including telescope making and observing. Plus other stuff that may be on my mind.

12.5" Mirror Cell Partially Done
I am mostly done with the mirror cell. I got the cable sling and retaining pins done. Just need the collimation bolts attached to the mirror pads and some more holes drilled (for venting and the back mirror fan) and I will be done! I am hoping that I finish all of the cutting this weekend and dedicate next week for painting.
