Secondary Ring Started!

This past Sunday, I braved the cold and started on the secondary ring.  I used the brackets made by Dennis at Dobstuff.com and they worked perfectly!  The ring is made of 3/4" Baltic Birch plywood and is 21" in diameter.  The inside of the ring is 17" in diameter.  I will probably have Dennis make a new focuser board because I marred this one up from drilling holes.  I still attached it to the ring to get an idea of how it will look.

I have the places marked for the Moonlight truss system.  I hope to finish the ring over the next week.  Then it will be time to work on the mirror box.
