Having always wanted a scope, but refusing to lay out the kind of cash required for a commercial purchase, I was to say the least incredibly excited at the prospect of building my own scope.
I am fortunate to have a Loving and Tolerant wife, who has supported my insane need for bizarre hobbies. Amazingly, and luckily for me, she has supported my endeavors into the following off the wall projects:
To make things a little more interesting, Binocular Telescopes really seem to fascinate me. So I made the decision to build an 8-inch Bino-scope.
So the saga begins, follow along with me as I progress thru this amazing pastime by following the links to the left.
