Life size model of Martin Beckett and the full CIRSI in its space frame. The front plate is 890mm diameter. The frame is 750 x 750 x 870 long, with the front plate and its mounting adding 100 to the 870 mm length. The overall weight of everything that is on the telescope is almost exactly 200 kg, with +/- a fill of LN2
