Dobsonian Mount

P1100424 In making the mount, I by and large followed the instructions on the Stellafane site. Where I diverged most was in the so-called tube cradle, which I replaced with my adjustable curtain-track trunnion system. To build the mount I purchased (my major wood outlay) a piece of ¾” red oak plywood, which because of a miscalculation I had to supplement with a piece of ½” beech plywood. The basics of the rocker box and ground board are close enough to the Stellafane instructions that I won’t elaborate except to point out a couple touches that I’m especially happy with.
