My C5 turned up on an auction site and I had to buy it. The portable observatory from the 1970s & 80s had long been on my telescope bucket list. Until now I’ve used the scope on my garden table, as it didn’t come with a tripod or wedge. I’d seen lots of homebuilt solutions for C8s and thought I’d have a go at a wedge for the little C5. Here are a few photos from the build.
