The first task was to redesign and re-fabricate my old Meade DS16 telescope with a front tube assembly that could be rotated 360 degrees on Teflon bearings. I first produced this redesign to scale, in the 3D modeling program Corel Dream [NIGHTMARE] 3D. The actual task of building the new design proved to be childs-play by comparison. I've provided an exploded view of the 3D modeling project on the left for your enjoyment.
