Well all but one part of the 6" Cave refractor is back from powder coating. They screwed up and painted the tube cradle an odd custom color which would "cost extra" if I had requested it. So now the have to strip it and repaint. It should be ready the middle of next week but that's ok because it will take that long to get everything else prepped and assembled.

Took a sizable chunk out of my thumb with a scalpel while trying to trim the paint around the bolt holes that were plugged. Should feel pretty sore by tomorrow. :foreheadslap:

I'm still waiting on a tube section to arrive from D&G Optics for the dew shield and I still need another 10lb. counterweight. Been trying to find one locally to avoid shipping but no luck so far.

The ATCO I bought from Mr. Siple is due in tomorrow and I'll try and post some pictures if I get it early enough.
