114mm ATM telescope
« on: December 24, 2017, 07:41:54 PM »
Greetings, I'm a noob here, in addition to have just been in Astronomy/AP for a little over 4 months now.  I'm a quick learner and already know a great deal about it, and I'm currently in the process of building my very own telescope.  I'm using a 4.5"(114mm) primary mirror and a 35mm secondary.  I'm trying to find out the normal inner tube diameter for a scope of this size and I'm having someone create me a main mirror cell and he desires this particular dimension.  My scope will be similar to how a Gladias DK is installation (except mine is a newt).  Thanks!  And glad to be here!
