Description

First go with the Star Instruments Rich Field 6".  Not too bad, a little abberation in the corners and the coma corrector spacing probably needs fine tuning, but a very respectable outcome for a scope that has been in someone's closet for the last 35 years.

On a side note: First time the gear got caught in a downpour. I have a DIY modded rain auto shutoff that killed the power and fortunately nothing was damaged.  Ten + years in the rainy northwest and this was the first time! A spring thundercloud came out of nowhere..
