Hello, everybody,
I just finished my first scope. I'm pretty proud of it and thought I could show it off here. 10" Orion primary, 5.6 in a standard tube, but with a hemispherical mount. Great views, and easy to use.

Hi David.
Great mount. I like the modular design -- that multiple scopes can share the same hemisphere.

If this particular application of the hemispheric mount came from your own noggin, then please seriously consider applying for (or researching the possibility thereof) a patent. I'm thinking this puppy might be quite marketable.

Best wishes.
