Here a picture from my home build 14" sphere dobson.
This telescope is performs very well with the smooth movements and the lightweight Hubble Optics sandwich mirror.

Are you happy with the quality of the mirror?

Very nice work, but from the picture it appears that the scope cannot reach the horizon. What is the lower limit altitude angle? I would think you would need more than a half-sphere to reach the horizon.
