Wall Racks for Telescopes.
My wife has been suggesting for some time that find a way
to get my telescopes off of the floor in my office and out
of the spare bedroom where I had to move them every time
we had guests.
made a trip to Home Depot and picked up some wall brackets
(as seen in the photo on the left and then cut some particle
board holders out to cradle the scopes. I cut each one to
fit a particular scope.
was able to attach the brackets to the wall using drywall
anchors by E-Z Ancor. They are self-drilling and hold up to
50 lbs each. (There are also larger ones that held up to 90
lbs.) I have four of them holding up each scope, so they will
definitely hold this bunch up.
you can see in the photo the largest scope I have up there
is the Orion 8" Newtonian. At 22 lbs, it is definitely
not going to burden 4 drywall anchors.
