Have YOU had a chance to view through them yet?? I mean a long clear dark nights worth of deep sky viewing?? How much did they end up weighing? Are they automated (motorized) at all or are you planning on computerization at all? I'm just trying to figure out when I need to get my air fare arranged so I can
drop in on you for a month or so. I understand you are great cook.
The mirrors havnt been started yet so no lookee through them possible,
Cant wait though.
manual only, I dont think I will add controllers as I'm not into photography, I find half the fun is hunting the objects down.
For some reasone it produces a sense of great satisfaction when I find it.
I have been told I'm a passable cook occasionally
Dang, I forgot all about you mechanically deforming spherically ground mirrors into paraboloids. You've been at this project so long (or is it my memory being so short) I forgot all about the glass not being ground yet. Yes, I too prefer hands-on sky searcher. It's much more satisfying and relaxing. How much does this thing weigh even without the mirrors?
