My aperture fever has caused a bit of crazyness. I bought a 444mm x 2000mm mirror in december and im not one to quit a challenge! Telescope building is crazy addictive, and i must say that Hubble must of been a great friend!
Trying to decide if i want to add a tertiary folding mirror to this next or just mount up the secondary and call it a build.. IF i fold this , I am going to mount a 100mm x 540mm apo fluorite to its output to function as a relay system; which will be feeding a hungary 80mm x 540mm apo fluorite.
Oh woe is me. IS there a cure, or am I now doomed. Is 17 inches enough? Are projects even worth time and effort when one could just sleep the fever away and ignore the calls to go back working for the sky?
I will update this as I progress; I could mount up the primary to this base plate as is- but i think the crazy doctor wants to slice out a few sections; freeing up some precious ounces.
Eventually some spring prosthetic support and the inevitable cooling fan.
Oh Heck my fever is causing vivid hallucinations of a bluetooth linear actuator instead of a focuser. Doh......
