I've been procrastinating putting on the triangle center spot for my farpoint cheshire.   Taking the mirror out?  Yikes!  What if I break something!?!

 

Well I finally got around to it last night and ya know what?  It's not scary.  Six screws, lift the whole cell out, and set it gently on the floor/bench/whatever.  Honestly the hardest part was finding a third hand to push down while I held the template in place.

 

Collimation with the cheshire is lovely easy.  I sort of wish my arms were longer but it does great with few moving parts.
