DSC_3131

Lower telescope section. The primary mirror will be mounted onto the base plate. The hexagonal assembly is attached to the base plate at three points, two of which allow for adjustment (collimation) of the mirror relative to the rest of the assembled telescope. The three brackets attached to the top of this hexagonal assembly will be used to connect struts between this and the middle telescope section.
