Surrounded

Astro-photo by Hwk

Tired of losing several hours every day trying to cool down the telescope, I decided to put some fans to see if they can get it.

The task seemed more difficult than it actually was.

It was a little scary to remove the primary mirror, mirror lock and focuser but is relatively easy. It's just a matter of removing screws.


And then, drill holes and polish the edges...
