I achieved visual first light just hours before the end of the year.
The position of the focal plane is spot on, collimation is dead easy with the two thumb screws and the optics show no aberrations with a 10mm eyepiece.

Because I anticipated problems with the focusing mechanism, I did not glue in the front end assembly and that will allow me to make a new redesigned one. Meanwhile I'm converting the existing one to a 4 guide pin version to see if I can make it work well.
