No, I really like them here :) Out of respect for all, I didn't include the seven refractors I also made.

wow Sir, I really like your crazy designs :D the crutch tripods are simply priceless :)

I only have one reflector that may be weird enough to add to these gems, my twisted wooden 6" f=1110mm scope with the first (and sofar last) mirror I ever made (beginners luck with 98.6% strehl):

and here's a video I present this scope at a star party: (from 6:29)

i'm about to build a mini-nasmyth this year.

While the reflector is not mine (club I used to frequent) I thought you guys might get a kick out of it. It's a custom 30 inch dob with a 6 inch F8 refractor finder. My little 80mm Apo is in the background. That was a fun night :bigshock:
