Hi! For what size of telescope is this? I have an 200cm dobsonian

You look like you may have had the same problem I had. When I tried to make one back in August, it came out pretty well but the slots did not come out exactly the same size. It seems to be a slicer issue. Have you figured out how to get them perfect yet?

Hi Jooshs. I didn't notice that. i will take a closer look and get back.
