Painting the tube's interior

Posted by maphilli14 on July 30, 2013 at 2:05 PM

The interior was already primed by Joe but I decided to take it one shade darker and fuller using Krylon® 4290 Camouflage Paint with Fusion Technology.

Final assembly:

Masked the exterior with some tape and newspaper as I wanted the outside unpainted to keep thermal equilibrium better to ambient

Deep inside the tube

A sample of the tube's interior with flocking material against the primer.  The flocking material also went against the tube's interior opposite the focuser drawtube

Finally done and ready for use!
