RE: Truss Tube Or Sonotube

I would go with a sonotube. A truss takes more time to construct, costs more, and if you don`t assemble all the parts correctly, you could have troubles aligning the mirror and secondary.

Some ATMers configure the sonotube so that it can be cut in half for easy portability.
