Been at the large ERF holders again.

Don't know if you remember a while back  I made a very large ERF holder for a Solar scope.

 

Well it would seem the word has spread across the grapevine and for that matter the globe.

 

I have just completed a request to make another one to fit a Celestron C 11.

 

This one is for a gentleman who is  ' an elected fellow of the Institute of Physics Singapore '.   

This one is now all parceled up and will be winging its way around the world on Friday to his University where it will be fitted to the Astrophysics Solar scope.

 

Funny old hobby this Astronomy 😂

Interesting fact for you. 

The Aluminium billet to make this was 14 inches in diameter and 3inches thick. It weighed in at 22.5 kilos. 

The finished holder weighs just under 2.5 kilos.
