Quote:Here is my first homemade scope, its a 10" f5. I designed it loosely around the Dobstuff scopes. I went with a smaller ALT bearing, as this is getting servocat treatment. I will be using the servocat system designed for the Meade Lightbridge. All parts designed in CAD and cut on a CNC.
Quote:Congrats - nice job!What CNC router did you use? What type of plywood?
