Po' Boy CPC C14
I thickened the ground board to 1.5" for greater stability (gorilla glue and screws). Finished detailing the MOD components. CPC14 completed. The old guy is still hacking...
What a project to be immersed in. Mine are usually dobsonians, and have also built tripod for a 6" nexstar SCT. l love your custom finderscope, looks like a barrel from 12 x 70 binoculars.
Good eye! The finder is a 70mm Orion Multi-Use finder scope. Some of my projects are birthed out of frustration. As I have shared elsewhere: "When I went looking for digital setting circles for my old school C14 fork mount I had a bad case of sticker shock when I ran into prices as high as $1600.00 just to add DSC's to this old school fork mount. This price shock brought me to the idea that I could purchase a used GOTO dob for way less money and, with successful modification, have DSC's, full GOTO, and computer control! All I had to do was come up with a way to convert one of these mounts for use with my C14 OTA."
