Stathis' Astronomy and Telescope Making Pages

My Philosophy of Visual Astronomy:

    - Aperture can only be replaced by even more aperture
    - Dark transparent skies cannot be replaced by anything else

This Pages shall serve as information exchange with other amateur telescope makers. I want to share my experience on mirror making and on building lightweight and compact Dobsonian telescopes.

Let the long travelled photons fall onto your retina. The best instrument for doing that is the telescope, that you shaped with your own hands.
