Another major project has been telescope metering. We have now cut the carbon fiber tubes to their appropriate length, and constructed mounting platforms for the primary mirror box and upper outer secondary ring. All that remains for this part of the telescope is to mount the ball and socket joints to the platforms. Once this is done, the telescope will start to look more like the finished project.
