Anyone else build telescopes? I've made a few, my best was a kind of cool 4" Newtonian reflector on a Dobsonian base. I included a few innovations in my design and it turned out pretty cool. It has a six sided pine tube. With the six sides I could have a flat surface to mount my focuser and set my elliptical mirror spider. I was also able to make one of the six panel sides partially removable for cleaning and adjustments inside the tube.
