Spider vain


The spider vain that holds the secondary mirror in place is constructe­d from one piece of aluminium, making the mirror’s position firm. With the scope working at f/3.2 it’s essential to have good collimatio­n. The spider vain helps maintain collimatio­n when the scope is being moved between locations.
