Wheelchair accessible telescope

My friends Frank and Kate at DFM Engineering have recently supplied a 24 inch telescope to the College of Southern Idaho. The design goes beyond just providing wheelchair access to the telescope floor; the system includes an articulated arm with a relay lenses that allows the eyepiece of the telescope to be positioned independently of the tail of the telescope.
