Yoke Mount 8" Newtonian Telescope - I built this scope in February 2006 at my speaker shop. - It's an 8" newtonian reflector in a homemade horseshoe yoke mount. - The base is made with 1" MDF and a pair of 2x4's. - The yoke is also 1" MDF including the horseshoe. - The horseshoe plate rides on two smooth steel wheels with bearings. - The tube is 1/2" MDF with internal bracing.
