Selztal Observation Site

Welcome - Enjoy your visit

Pieces come together.

It's time to perform the final mounting of all components. Next "destination" should be: mounting the main mirror and go streight ahead to the final destination named: "first light"! I'm curious about, after having mounted all components, if they fit together. Is the focus in the right place. Will I be able to perform a sufficient alignment of opical components? Does the mount payload support the overall weight of the complete tube? I never mounted such a heavy telescope before. Does the proofed precision of pointing and guiding valid for the 150/1340mm scope be repeated for the final scope with higher weight and much longer tube. A lot of open questions - some of them will be answered in the next days....
