Tom Jonard's 6" f/8-1/3 telescope

Here's the 6" setup on the lawn at Perkins Obersvatory in Delaware, Ohio.
This is a 70's vintage Criterion RV-6 that I've refurbished.  The tube, primary and cell, secondary and spider and focuser are original.  The 6X finder is a replacement.  The 0X finder is a modified Tasco gun sight.  The rings holding the OTA are slightly over-sized to allow tube rotation.  The mount is a standard Polaris mount with Right Ascension drive.
