~Secondary Mirror on Custer Observatory's 25" Dome Telescope~

A replacement secondary mirror that places the eyepiece in Custer Observatory's previous dome telescope closer to the floor. This concept came from Jeff Katz, the  design and machining were mine. The telescope is on long term loan from Suffolk County Commuity College.
