OTA  , tripod spreader counterweights etc fitted , still nothing missing , phew ! .

 

It's starting to look really sexy , what an awesome little telescope , man the Chinese could learn a thing or two about mounting an OTA properly , this SP mount is solid !  The new small reflectors are lucky to have an EQ2 under them , sometimes only the poor EQ1's !!

A quick look down the OTA , optics are pristeen , only a slight tweek of the secondary to get perfect columation , super easy .
