I am trying to finish up a couple things before I dive into this, but I have been hoping to get this up and rolling for awhile. I might have posted pics before too. So, if I have, forgive me.
I think I have everything needed to square this baby away, and will try and post some pictures for any interested parties. Tom K. assured me I was/am capable of getting this back in shape, but I am not convinced. The secondary was removed and the original vanes(?) are gone. I have the copper straps that someone else used on here. But, this is more involved than any messing around than I have done before. So, we will see how it goes.
The reason I am posting before I even get started is to see if anyone has advice on removing the caps on the bolts or screws in the second pic. Every screw is capped this way. I could fiddle around with the nuts, I think, but I would prefer to remove the primary mirror to hopefully avoid any accidents. So, since I cannot get to those nuts, I wondered if anyone else had some insight. If not, no worries. I plan to get rolling regardless, but it might be a very slow process. It is CRUMMY weather for the foreseeable future, so it should give me something to do besides wool gathering.
Anyone have any tips for this one? TIA
