Continued Work on Baby

I was not pleased with the usability of the pull tube focuser,  so I bought a very nice Crayford style focuser.  It has a larger tube OD than what I was using, so I had to use a 1 7/8" Forstner bit to enlarge the eyepiece hole.  While trying to adjust the diagonal mirror's fore and aft position,  I decided the scheme that I had for that was not very good, so I put a spring in between the spider and diagonal holder.  This simplifies fine adjustments to position.
