Wow, these big Dobs make mine look like a pea-shooter but - I made it, it works, I love it! Sky-Watcher 10" (254mm) SPX OTA on home brew base.

This Dob wins the mojo contest. It ought to have those travel stickers on its OTA, seeing as it's been to some of the highest and remotest places of the UK.   :)

My 18 inch Sumerian with J Nichol mirror, don't matter how big they are even this won't see through the dam clouds.

Not seen light for over a month due to weather and illness. The truss poles are now coated black, must take some new shots of it.
