    Nice job. You certainly shouldn't have any problem with cooling. Are you adding any additional corrective prisms/lenses?

    There is some intentional space that could be used for extra optics.
    But I become less and less convinced of their necessity ...

    Nice, How did you ensure you don't have a thermal short around the TEC?

    I tried a few but I guess I'll settle with the o-like.

    I use 4x simple TO-3 isolation to prevent thermal conduction.
