Build your own telescope

More about the product

For anyone who has ever dreamed of exploring the heavens with a telescope, Build Your Own Telescope can make that dream come true. In clear, step-by-step instructions, author Richard Berry tells how to build five telescopes, from a simple reflecting telescope suitable for a parent and child to build together to a \"research-grade\" 10-inch telescope capable of sustaining a lifetime\'s interest in astronomy. Detailed instructions include complete plans and photographs that show how anyone can construct a powerful telescope with ordinary household tools and materials.

Build Your Own Telescope includes complete plans, step-by-step instructions and 275 illustrations that show you how to build these five telescopes:

  • 4\" f /10 Reflector: A sturdy and easy-to-use telescope that is perfect for beginners or as a parent/child project.
  • 6\" f /8 Dobsonian Reflector: A light, compact telescope that is simple to build, but powerful enough to satisfy a backyard observer for many years.
  • 6\" f /8 Equatorial Reflector: A classic design for the amateur astronomer or craftsman who wants an elegant telescope and great performance.
  • 10\" f /6 Dobsonian Reflector: A powerful and versatile telescope suitable for casual stargazing or for a serious amateur\'s long-term observing programs.
  • 6\" f /15 Refractor: A large refractor that outperforms commercial telescopes of considerably larger aperture.

WHAT THE REVIEWERS SAY...

\"\'Please send me plans for making a telescope.\'So write many enthusiasts eager to begin observing but unable to buy a commercial instrument. There are already several books on just this topic, usually giving an outline which you can then flesh out according to the materials available.

\"This book takes a different approach. It gives very specific nut and bolt instructions for making five separate telescopes. If you want, you can build any of them precisely as instructed, or you can adapt the designs as you please...

\"The designs include many novel features, such as the use of silicone rubber cement to secure mirrors. The text is exemplary in its clarity and readability-praise that I don\'t bestow lightly I recommend it without reservation \' \'

Robin Scagell, reviewed in the Journal of the British Astronomical Association

\"Subtitled \'Complete Plans for Five Telescopes You Can Build with Simple Hand Tools,\'this book is just that, with designs ranging from a simple but elegant 4.25-inch reflector (designed for an eight-year-old) to a beautiful 6-inch refractor. It assumes that you will buy commercial optics, but there is a section on homemade optics as well. Highly recommended!\"

                           Geoff Chester, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

\"Richard Berry is to be congratulated for compiling this fine well-illustrated book. Most books about telescope making do not include telescope plans, and many assume that you have access to a machine shop in order to make amounting. Richard shows ways to make mounts with common tools and hardware store materials. I only wish that this book had been available when I was a teenager building my first telescope.\'


Richard J.Wessling, reviewed in The Strolling Astronomer, Journal of the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers
