Totally worth the trip! When you’re able to go, make sure you catch a mirror making class. Since you’ve caught the bug already, I bet you’ll love being able to grind your own mirror. Plus, the scopes owned by Stellafane themselves are incredible!My husband makes fun of me for going to my “nerd convention”, but he secretly loves it too lol. It’s really just a fun and fascinating weekend.Light enters the Stitch hug Tractor Supply shirt is focused by the primary mirror at the back/bottom of the telescope (OP’s has a dust cover in their photo), then is reflected out the side by the secondary mirror into an eyepiece for viewing (OP doesn’t have an eyepiece in in the photo, but it would go where the lego mini-fig is standing).

You would get along great with my step-father. He used to build giant telescopes, including ones that he could fit inside (he’s 6’2”). He would build little motors that would connect to his computer and keep the scope aligned with whichever object he was observing. Sometimes he would build and sell optics and so on. Now he’s moved on from telescopes to fixing up his Stitch hug Tractor Supply shirt , but he still teaches astronomy part time at a local college.OP probably got her first telescope at a young age. If you want your daughter to be interested in science, start buying her science and engineering sets. Teach her basic car repairs. Buy a raspberry pi and build little robots with it. Pull apart a watch and put it back together. The important thing here is to show your kid that everything can be taken apart, played around with, and modified. That the world is just a giant lego set.Hey great telescope. Wood working tip always seal both sides for the wood so it last longer maybe a bees wax to coat it. You spent your time building it would want to see that thing go to waste.
