He likes that rug usually our grandaughter is on it with him .


Uta mostly good to go , pulling old hardware apart again a major pain

focuser board needs a sand and maybe a little drilling on rear to shave a little more weight .


adjustment knobs need shortening



The protostar 4 vane I like a lot

The original set up is grub screws sunk down into the hub looks tidy But I never liked messing with a hex key above my primary so added these knobs , also one night I travelled with my scope and one of those grub screws fell out had no idea when and where and obviously had to pack up and go home This works much better .


Back at work now so things have slowed a bit I dont seem to have much time spare of late so this last part will likely drag on a bit
$350 down maybe a little more or less ,(50 hours time wise ) , truss tubes left to buy and measure out the FL and adjust to my eyepieces , I think I'm mostly ok these days I remember when i had the pretoria and a few other odd ones the H2 travel was really tight to get all to focus , a few little things to work through , secondary to work out not much else i can think of .
