Building a small ball scope

So I have a 114mm F8 Mirror with a secondary and spider, I have been wanting to turn this into a telescope for some time (and will do so if I ever have any money). I would like to build a small ball scope with it.

  • Sheet of plywood (1/2 inch should be fine)
  • 3/4 Al tube (enough for 3 trusses)
  • Tube Cutter
  • 6-7" Sphere
  • Random fasteners
  • Some Lead Shot for counter balance
  • Wood Varnish
  • 8cm fan
