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.
