My scope is a handmade 10" f5 Newtonian on a Dob mount. It started out many years ago as a Meade but the mount was unstable and poorly made. My father, a retired fitter, made the new mount. It allows the tube to be moved up and down, and easily rotated. It is fairly heavy but moves very easily in alt-az. The eyepiece holder is great in the dark.

I have added a 8x50 finder, Telrad and JMI focuser. My eyepieces are the usual range and my next project is to add an Argo Navis.
