The Telescope Chronicles (cont'd)

Ahh, Sunday evening- I finally got around to unpacking and assembling the various parts of the Dob. With my nearby laptop playing this  video of suggested assembly instructions, it was quite straightforward. Hell, I even set up a camera and did some recording of my progress, just for posterity's sake.

The embarrassing assembly proceedings may be viewed at

The telescope was supplied with a laser collimator as well.  This also doubles as a cat toy! (just don't shine it in their eyes.)
