galaxy restoration

Restored from last used thirteen years ago to as best as I can get it now state, it's lost a bit of shine but it has a new focuser, secondary mirror, dovetails, go-to mount, new mirror springs, oag and loadsa memories.

Oh, and back then, I didn't know how to collimate it. Remarkably, it wasn't too far off...

254mm f4.7 which @ 1200mm focal length, gives as fast and as close as we're gonna get to this spring's galaxies.
