Welcome to the Astronomy and Telescope Making Pages of Stathis Kafalis.

I supply borosilicate glass blanks for telescope mirros, grinding and polishing material.

In the following pages you will find descriptions of my lightweight and compact Dobsonian telescopes, guidelines for making minimalist telescopes for amateur astronomy, making of astronomical mirrors by hand and observing of the deep sky wonders with this scopes.

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.
