16" for Anthony in Pittsburgh, PA.:

This 16" F4.5 "remake" built for Anthony in Pittsburgh, PA.  In this example,  I used the original Meade Lightbridge primary mirror and cell.  Note that my truss telescopes use a "single" ring at the upper end. They are light, sturdy and hold collimation well. A focuser baffle is included as standard (traditional UTA are available as an optional extra).

Please contact me for information any time.

 
The telescope was completed in June 2012.
 
The scope is set up and ready to use. The focuser is a Moonlite "green" in color with a Destiny curved-vane spider and 3.5" Antares 1/15th wave secondary.
 


The Upper Tube (single) Ring. Note the Telrad. Just about any finder can be mounted here.

A 12Vdc fans help cool the 16" mirror. The fan is from the original Lightbridge telescope. I've also used the original Lightbridge flotation mirror cell (fans are an optional extra).
Here's a good view of the telescope during setup.
