6 inch F/8 Chief

It looks like an ordinary F/8 Newtonian until you look in the front.   This 6 inch Chief is made of Baltic birch and is as good a piece of furniture as it is a telescope.   It’s mounted on an alt/azimuth fork with stainless handles for easy transport.  The side bearings are put on with 2-sided tape for now and can be taken off if a GEM is used.  Correcting lenses are AR coated mounted under the Moonlight focuser.   Check out my YouTube videos on making an 8 inch Chief: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Ex4PQtkR4Temp
