Hale 200 inch Model

I also made working 1:64 models of the Yerkes 40 inch Alvan Clark refractor and the Hubble Space Telescope. These are all at the same 1:64 scale. The three models I made are all of aluminum and are fully functional small telescopes. More details about making the Hale model is here: Making the Hale Model
