This PARTIAL kit has "most" of what you'd need to complete your telescope -- so if you're handy with woodworking tools you can get a head-start on a strut telescope. The partial kit is as follows (the wood alone is worth the price!):

1) Rocker box sides for 19" diameter alt bearings
2) Rocker box front/rear "spacers" to match OTA tube rings.
3) Mirror board and top ring OTA components (a center mirror box ring is needed)
4) Mirror box wood struts (to affix the altitude bearings to).
5) These parts are coated with varnish BUT I wasn't happy with the finish. If's up to you if you decide to work on the finish.

You would need to make:
1) 19" diameter altitude bearings.
2) Center ring for mirror box.
3) Two clamps for altitude bearings
4) Mirror cell, spider, focuser and focuser bracket.

(NOTE I can make these items for you, we can talk -- BUT again, if you're OK with wood working you'll get a great start on the kit.

$25 flat rate shipping anywhere CONUS.
