So with all the hoo-ha going on about the eclipse in the states, i thought i'd make myself a little newt that'll eventually be for solar viewing (once i make a shroud and get a filter of course) that i can bung in the car and take to work for a spot of lunchtime viewing...

Just need to make an eyepiece holder to bolt onto the top ring now... (sketchup here i come)

Kinda cute so far thought :D the joy of 3D printers (and finding a 78mm mirror set out of a broken penguin scope in my 'box of bits' lol)
