Sounds very interesting, don't suppose you'd like to post a few pics of your build in the DIY section :)

There are many that would be very interested to see it (me included ) :icon_salut:

Yes, please do. I was tempted to do something very similar for my 10" mirror set until a ready-made tube happened to come up.

I too would like to know how you make your scope. I won't try just yet but I keep thinking about it! How much was the mirror?
