The Telescope - Part One

As I've mentioned (briefly), I'm building a travel Dobsonian telescope around a mirror that I made with my Granddad back in 1982. Here's what I looked like back then. (I'm the one on the left ;-)


We're in the process of polishing the mirror with rouge (as evidenced by the red-stained pitch lap).

Here's the resulting fine piece of optics, some 25 years in the future:


I'll be posting some more pics in the coming months, as I complete meaningful parts of the construction of the mounting.

Ohhhhh...purty! Good luck! Dobsonians are great (I have a 8" scope) and used to have a 15" StarMaster.
