    It's a real TMB175 dewcap and lid.

    Hi Mike, Cool scope! Have you ever used an AP 180 EDT? And if so, how does the TMB 175 compare? Thanks, Robert

    Hi Robert, I have not used a 180EDT. I can imagine the 180EDT is fantastic, and the TMB was for sure.
    What an impressive mount!
    Great scope, great mt.!!! Must have been really rewarding to view with. :)
    Did you make the mount from saturn V parts? What a great looking setup!
