Description

This happens when a model airplane builder loves astrophotography :-)

This telescope is build from plywood, carbon tubes and some carbon fibre/balsawood sandwich parts. The complete weight including my orion uk primary mirror (5,7kg) is 10,7kg. The empty frame weight is only 2,4kg, but rock-solid

So it is not a big deal for my old, but reliable OTE 150 mount.

The first tests were very promising, i will upload the first light picture soon... stay tuned, i already love this scope ;-)
