Hi all, I took a little break from the 17.5" remake to try out a few techniques with making a dobbie mount for an 8" rich field scope. Peter also has a coma corrector which will be necessary with such a fast scope. Peter (aka Hickny) and I purchased a new 8" f/4 OTA from Bintel this week that was lacking a mirror cell (cheap scope consequently). This is to be a grab-n-go scope which we shall share. You will see in the pics how small and 'cute' it looks,
Nice job cj.. I never thought about making or submitting an article about them.Well done. fwiw. Been making & selling these for yrs. I include the resistor inside the flanged holder just in case they get put in some other torch. Easy as pie.
