My 8" F/4 travel scope: Light shield

The light shield is made out of a coat hanger and some foam board (found by a dumpster when students were moving out last year) tied with wire ties. For transportation, the foam board removes so everything can go flat. The coat hanger hooks into a hole on the strut and focuser board.

And I think that's all I have to say about this project. Feel free to ask questions. I am really grateful to all the nice folks on the ATM forum on Cloudy Nights for their suggestions, and I did a lot of looking around the web to get ideas.
