Getting closer

Once I received the new struts and ball socket joints from Moonlight Focuser, I cut them to length and attached the ball joints to the ends.  I then attached the socket joints to mirror box and adjusted them from three socket joint sets to four on the upper assembly.  Test fitted everything and it makes a nice solid unit.

After a trip to the hardware store, I then attached the mirror cell to to the mirror box.  I used a combination of threaded standoffs and washers to center the mirror cell.
