Hi Jose,
Welcome to IceInSpace

Here is one recent example that I am aware of,
from the "Equipment/ ATM and DIY Projects" sub-forum section:
http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...d.php?t=126947

I am sure Glen can give you further information if requested.

Good Luck with your project.

Hi Jose,
Rolf ( Skyviking ) and myself have both built Serrurier truss scopes that suit equatorial mounts. A bit more complex but low weight and well balanced. Search the forum and you should find several build threads.

Hi, thanks for helping me. I think I can already start the project but have a question. What size do I have to make a centerpiece?

As he had said, my intention is to make 10 inches.
