Marilyn gets a new secondary ring

Marilyn's new Secondary Ring

This past week, I redid Marilyn’s secondary ring to bring it up to speed with the rest of her.  The original ring was from when she was a ballscope and was painted black.  Marilyn now has a new finish (and a new configuration) so it was time to redo the secondary ring to match the rest of her.  I had some scrap 1/2″ Baltic Birch plywood laying around and I reused components from my 16″ scope secondary ring (that was recently made a classic two ring design).  This included the focuser board that Dennis Steele from made for me.

It works great and Marilyn seems to like it.
