I am wanting to build a Trus Scope from my Dob scope. The Dob is motors/tracking abilities will work with a truss design with a few minor modifications but I need to know where to go to get the design plans for a Truss scope for a 333mm or 13.1" f4.5 primary mirror. Any help would be apreciated. Why a Truss design you might ask? I love the look of the Truss scopes and it's just as practicle as the Dob I currently have. I've been into wood working since I was 12 and the Truss scopes are very appealing to me for that reason.
