Interesting 8" scope design


Recommended Posts

An imaginative design... looks like it folds up too...

the eyepiece stays at one height and the rest pivots around it. 

The router is some piece of m/c too!

Interesting post Pete! ?

Don't know if he found the CNC design program/instructions  from somewhere or not  but its not just the finished CNC bit that's good but creating the CNC design program  in the first place if he did it from scratch. :respect:

The 8" scope must be a nice short F4. Anything bigger/longer would make the whole thing far too unwieldy. But I'm sure, for an 8" F4, it would be very convenient to use.
