Lurie-Houghton Telescope
Oblique Front View

PHOTO: Oblique front view of scope
Here's a closer look at the front end of the telescope. The corrector lens assembly, focuser with eyepiece and dovetail finder bracket are easily seen. The power switch for the fans is in front of the finder bracket. Just below the finder bracket are two 12V power jacks. They are used to provide the DC power for the fans and are wired in parallel so 12V is available for a guiding eyepiece or CCD camera. This photo was taken 11 August 2000 with an Olympus D-600L digital camera.
