Here are a few images of a recently completed and shipped AG Optical Systems 12.5" Imaging Dall Kirkham with an optional Thermal Control System. The focuser is an Optec TCF-S3i unit capable of carrying heavy camera loads.

Here is a view of the AG Optical Systems Thermal Control System. The TCS consists of primary and secondary heaters, primary mirror cooling fans, temperature sensors, and a PC-based application that automates primary mirror cooling and dew prevention.
