My new secondary flat mirror (28mm minor axis) arrived today from Mumbai. The view is better after installing this new mirror.

Master Anup with the telescope


Master Anup was also very excited to have a look through the new instrument.



Angel happy after viewing through the telescope.


Cute little Angel paid a visit and enjoyed peeping through the telescope.



The first testing of the telescope.


The first views from my new telescope were fine. The magnification was great. Though slightly blurry the vision was satisfactory. I guess my secondary is not up to the mark.

Preparing and assembling the new tube.


I drilled a hole in the new tube for the focuser and also installed the spider with the secondary mirror. After installing the primary mirror I took it up to the terrace and placed it on a wooden saw-horse and aimed it towards a hill far away.
