There’s resources on Stellafane’s website (google) for building telescopes. I’d also HIGHLY recommend I like skating and maybe three people shirt by Richard Berry and David Kriege. It’s an older book, but the engineering concepts and instructions are unmatchable. There should be PDFs of it onlineThe telescope moves on two axes via bearings lined with laminate material, altitude (up and down) and azimuth (side to side). If I want to move it, I basically just grab the whole thing and move it to where I want it to be. Then I just stick an eyepiece in the focuser, focus it, and it’s good to go.
Best I like skating and maybe three people shirt
Would anyone know of a website or organization on the east coast that takes donations I like skating and maybe three people shirt hobby telescope makers? My father left mirror blanks, grinding equipment, and polishing equipment with the estate and I don’t think I’ll ever gather the willpower to partake in that hobby. I keep seeing these kids doing great builds and want to help make that happen for them.How do you get into this? I’ve always been interested in space and building stuff and telescopes from a distance but since I’m a girl my parents (meaning only the best) always discouraged me from ever taking science or physics and stick to what I’m “good at”. But this looks really cool, it’s inspiring me to actually look into some of the scarier, science-y-er hobbies I wanna try 🙂 but I’m still way too overwhelmed to know how to get into any of this or where to start as a complete beginner with no real science education. Do you know any good resources/places to get started?
