Yes, I was talking about the clock on the radio. I had no idea parts were still out there. Cool. Mine still runs when I plug it in. With the Art Deco look I assumed it was from the 20-30's era.

Here she is , the 2 parts of 12 inch aliminium tube in Dob form , each about 50 inches long as the f/l is 100 inches (2500mm )
But woaw you want to see jupiter in this .
8"f12 would be awesome.
I've been experimenting with the 6"f13, mostly diagonal mirror size and the support for it.
The performance from these long newts is pretty much untouchable if you can control the tubes currents and all the other misc. thermal management of the optical tube.
They are a specialized scope and only good for high power but are excellent for doing just that.

I like the skeletonized tube. Does that help out with the tube currents or help with balancing the 100 inch focal length, I like that idea.
What's the gold truss scope?

Plus a telrad and lots of electrical tape.
It's on a EQ6 -- much more stable than the original mount!

These 2 are a good match , this is my most used set up , light , strong and with awsome optics .
