Now that I'm getting older I have decided to make a permanent home for my telescope. As having to lug my heavy Meade 10" Schmit Newtonian out side every time I use it is not going to get any easier in the future.
So here I'll be blogging all the trials, tribulations, successes and failures (of which there will be many I'm sure) of building an astronomical observatory from scratch.

Give me a Brake (Disc)
As you can see my measurement were correct a perfect fit, will just need a large washer now to clamp mount to the brake disc. Next job though is to get the grinder out a clear the disc up and make it nice and shiny.
