Finderscope rings

Last weekend we made some rings for mounting a finderscope on the main telescope. Today I got the holes drilled and tapped so the rings are ready to use. The gallery below shows the adaptive pocketing paths that were used to cut both the part and the jig that allowed drilling the holes at +/- 120 degrees.

There is a video of the roughing operation at 2000 mm/min that will be online soon.
