Sawing wood with a little help from my daughter.

If I can do it, anyone can…

So, what’s the point of a “how i did it” website?  Well, when I was building my telescope, I scoured the Internet for information.  Yes, it was great to find sites with detailed how-to information, and you’ll find some of those listed on the links page.  But I also liked finding sites where the writer simply told about how he or she built a scope.  When I read that kind of site, I always thought… hey, that doesn’t sound too difficult.

That was my intention with this site.  I am quite a bad handyman.  No joke.  That I managed to build a telescope astounds me to this day.  I simply hope that somebody reading this – somebody who may doubt his or her own ability to make a telescope – will think to themselves:  if he can do it, I can do it!

Note: Original construction occurred between February 1, 2003 and February 9, 2003.
