Finally got around to collimating a 114 that I picked up from SGW a while ago. First order of business was flipping the crown and flint back to the proper orientation and fixing a damaged spacer. But the images were still disappointing and it turned out to be way out of collimation. It's a bit tricky collimating a cell that wasn't designed for it, but I seem to have gotten the knack for it.
Then started to assemble a frankenscope 114 OTA that I've put together from a combination of spare parts that came with others and a few from donors. It has a "62mm" focuser, a slant-letter objective, and an indeterminate tube. It's amazing that pieces made that many years apart all fit together. Started collimating the cell, but realized the focuser isn't on straight, so I need to get that fixed first. This one has a mount waiting for it, but I also need to find or make a case for it.
There's a third one that needs a replacement for the front baffle. It's also missing the draw tube and tailpiece, no mount, and no case, so it's not a top priority right now. But at least it's collimated and gives nice images. That makes me a bit reluctant to take off the cell to insert a baffle.
