    Hi everyone!

    Hello Derek, welcome to the lounge, nice to hear from you
  2. Hi Steven, Welcome to the lounge, love the story about M42, exactly what hooked me in, found it by accident, did not know what I was doing and just free roaming with my 4.5" eq mount, it was the trapezium that puzzled me at the time, if I remember right I described it as a nest of eggs then everyone told me what it was, a totally awesome site, looked even better in the 10" once I got it done, a treasure for sure, I can't wait to see it in the 20".

  5. Getting ever so close to completion of this mirror, I hope to have it finished this weekend. It is now a 20" F-4.6 after 175 hours work decided it would be to high at F-5.125 so reground the focal down to make it shorter.

      That has been some battle. I hope you have now finished this epic challenge and I have been following this from the beginning.
