     This spider is easy to make, it's inexpensive, the vanes are very thin yet extremely strong, and it's light weight, too. I need to give credit where credit is due. This isn't my idea. I don't know who came up with this idea, but I first saw it at the Chabot Telescope Maker's workshop in Oakland, California about 20 years ago.
