Pictures of the tailpiece (instruments hung behind the hole in the primary mirror of the telescope). Currently the tailpiece is equipped to hold a CCD camera for guiding the telescope and another CCD camera for direct imaging. The cables hanging off the tailpiece connect to the computer controls for the cameras and motors.
