Jack Gelfand Astronomy and Telescopes-Mirror Box

Web Anchor

The mirror floats on a standard seat belt webbing purchased at an auto store. I use 1/4"x20 screws to fasten the web to the mirror box wall. The 1/8" aluminum plate distributes the force evenly. There are 1/4"x20 brass inserts screwed into the plywood wall to provide good threads for the bolts.
