    Hi ScottAz, Thanks for checking out the photo of my fork mount. I will post a new photo on Cloudy Nights with the OTA attached for everyone to enjoy. But, the real enjoyment is looking through it. The completed 10" f/5.6 telescope can also be seen on our website. Thanks again, and Clear Skies, Forever! Mel My telescope was featured in the debut issue (April, 2007) of Astronomy Techonology Today. During its contruction, I had no idea how well this instrument was going to perform. But, it worked flawlessly. Now I must get a clock drive to spin it.
    cooooool!
