Meade Lightbridge baffle

Postby james s » Sat Aug 21, 2010 11:00 am

Hi all,

Here is a photo of the baffle I have made for my dob.

It's made from foam rubber sheet (used by the insulation industry) and then painted white with flexible paint.

It seems to fit perfectly well and no doubt will help in cooling the mirror by increasing fan efficiency.

I'd really like to find a good way of counterbalancing this scope though - so if anyone has any ideas on how to do this, please help.

Cheers!
