A custom 6"/F12 Skylight nears completion...
      #6202111 - 11/18/13 05:08 PM Attachment (54 downloads)

I have now gotten to the really interesting stuff on a Custom design 6"/F12 Skylight refractor.

The discussion and initial order was placed earlier this year, and now almost all the parts are here. Almost..still waiting for the Starlight focuser(s)...

I will update this thread over the coming weeks with more information and pictures...definitely pictures.

Please check back, it will be worth coming back for!

Hi Richard,

That looks intriguing. Is the tube closure plate brass? I like the engraving. Looking forward to more pictures!

Hi Ian, yes, the engraved rear plate is solid brass.

The countercell was finished late last week & the clients' own D&G lens is shown in place:
