This blog is mainly about Telescope making, and some things about my politics. At last we finally have a President that can say "Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me." instead of mixing up with an old Who song.

Mirror cell glue up

Here is the mirror resting on the cell.
A top view of it. The larger holes at the two ends of the bar that holds the rocker are for the top adjustment bolts. The single bottom adjustment bold is attached through the large hole centered on the back bar from underneath.
Another shot of it showing the four mounting pads. The lower two are on the rocker bar so that the weight is evenly distributed on a three point system.
Here is the underside of where the sling posts are. Glued on 1/32" sheet aluminum gussets there and on all the joints top and bottom.
One of the posts that contains the mounting points.
Here is the single rocker bar. That's two t-nuts attached to it. Its made of 3/4"
