First light 1

Finally first light after a few years of planning and building! Only got to see a hazy moon before it clouded up. But is officially working. It might never be "finnished" though.

    Very nice! Did you grind the mirror? What are the scope's specs?  EDIT: Love the paint, very artistic!

    I made everything except the glass. It's a 12" f5. The paint wasn't finnished yet when this shot was taken.
