PHOTO: Fan and Focuser in Painted Tube 
Equatorial Mount
Here is the focuser and one of the blower fans showing the back side of the fan power switch, voltage dropping diodes and the wiring. The inside of the tube is painted flat black to minimize extraneous light relflections inside the telescope. This photo was taken 7 May 2000 with an Olympus D-600L digital camera.
