10" F4.5 Newtonian for Nick in Vancouver, B.C.:

The Destiny curved vane spider and 2-speed 2" crayford focuser.

A small 1.25# counterweight is affixed to the center of the mirror cell. This helps keep the rocker box short and closer to the ground, adding to the stability of the telescope..
I always include a mirror cover with the telescopes I build.
The telescope assembles and disassembles without the need for tools.
