Can you leave your garage door open one night and let me know?...
I'll definitively take you up on the PM for spare parts now that I see you are struggling to contain your collection! I'd only be helping you out!

I have some rings for the 3" but they are assigned. I need to better organize the parts. I did not even realize I had 3 sets of 4" guidescope rings However, that does mean I can make three photo equatorials. I have three uni balances. I started the organizing because I also have some requests for photo equatorials. So I needed to make sure I had everything.

I haven't gotten to it yet Robert. Been busy with other things. I just finished the lens cell for the Jaegertron last Saturday. That took longer than expected. I haven't decided how to make the clamps for the panels yet. Probably CNC. the panels themselves aren't the problem. Will use 1/16 inch think aluminum plate.

Of course the real panels would be better if some really nice person had some to sell me. I already have the tube brackets and rod.

Terra, I need to take inventory to make sure I have enough panels for complete scope sets. I would hate to be the one that is looking for panels after I donated some to another cause. Like I stated before. Extra parts can go. Complete sets I will not break up.

Talk about full disclosure! Excellent thread and loved the description about delivery services spanning 10 years. It would be a project unto itself but would love to see a picture of the scopes lined up parade style. I'm now worn out from too much window shopping:-)
