Hi All,
I am looking for anyone out there who has plans for building a Truss Telescope frame. I presently have a Meade 16" Starfinder which I would like to convert into a Truss Scope. This would mean keeping my primary mirror, secondary diagonal mount assembly, JMI focuser, TelRad and scraping the rest. These items would be moved to their new Truss home, if I can possibly find anyone out there with plans for building one. Even if the plans are for an alternate size, I can modify the plans for my 16" primary. Would like to be able to examine several designs before I make a final decision on the ultimate design.
Thanks to anyone who can help in this area.
