Hard at it until 1am working magic on finder accessories, stalks and vixen bars and then first teaser picture of pre-assembly of one totally unique scope. Must remember to not put myself in pictures, but it's the beauty within that counts!!!
 
 
Busy day in the workshop, getting another 60mm brass and polished aluminium scope ready to fly off and a few finishing touches to Big MaK and then tomorrow about 30+ hand made thumb screws in brass and alli and map out the next set of builds. A great response from Astrobuysell and I've got a lot of calls and emails to make.
 
 
The proto-type Big Mac 150mm scope is now finished. Not without it's teething problem, but they sem to have been overcome. This was a wholenew ball game, but I feel I can to the Maksutov scope justice. I also noticed it doubles as a fantastic expresso machine.......................
 
 
I was out attempting to star test last night, and of course it was cloudy. Up again at 3am and of course it was cloudy. Then I remembered this is England, took a drag on a cigi and went back indoors and started the day early too early. The newly finished f16 76mm will have a delayed departure unfortunately.


Hopefully today I'll be finishing off another f16.7 in brass and polished Alli with gold highlights,...........
 
 
Just a bit of fun this morning, but just so you know, when you see a Moonraker scope installed it's actually where it seems to be. WE will however be doing a photo shoot hopefully next week for the Delta-Pod and a selection of scopes. More good news, We will be off to Moscow after NEAF for the launch of the Thurstan Turner editions of telescopes and Delta pods. Telescopes and pod are nearing completion and then over to the USSR. Depending on the political climate that is...

Not been updating for a while as I've been under a bit of pressure with telescope builds and tight dead lines, but we're getting there. More comments are on the "feedback page" funny that!!! and below are some images of a Vixen 150ed which is having a makeover with custom adapter, rings etc and some other bits that are ongoing for different clients. Looking forward to receiving a classic Victorian scope for restoration and in one week had three enquiries alone for Lzos and Lomo triplet builds from 80mm -130mm. At present I'm working on a number models for shows and clients and hoping all will come together in good time.
