But his enduring gift to “glass pushers” around the world was his book La Construction du Télescope d’Amateur, which first appeared in An English edition, titled How To Make a Telescope, followed six years later. Amateur Telescope Making We dedicate this book, with humility, to the memory of the late Tom Waineo.

Tom epitomised the most laudable qualities of the amateur telescope maker, giving selflessly of his time and using his extensive experience and wisdom in order to help others. Amateur Telescope Making in the Internet Age Finding Parts, Getting Help, and More (eBook): Clark, R.: Springer PublishingThis is a book about making telescopes from available parts.

It provides guidance on where to look and what to look for in selecting items for telescope making and explains how to assemble these components to produce an excellent instrument on a tight.

Amateur Telescope Making. Amateur Telescope Making (ATM) is a hobby that combines the craftsman's hands, the artist's eye, and the scavenger's nose.

A very fine telescope can be built from almost anything. It is limited only by the maker's creativity and resourcefulness. His interest in amateur telescope making began in the mid s after reading Neale Howard's book Standard Handbook For Telescope Making.

It was several years before he ground and polished his first mirror -- a 6" F/8 that was actually quite bad. The project of making a /2 inch telescope was made possible only with the help of many other people, most of whom are part of the Amateur Astronomers Association.

Phil Pinches, Stew Rorer and Barry Levin each provided years of experience without which this project could never have been completed.

The book also includes details on the latest released telescope lines, e.g. the, and inch aperture models of the Meade LX-R series. As a former editor for Sky & Telescope, Astronomy, and Star & Sky magazines, the author is the ideal person to write this book.

Since the invention of the telescope about years ago, telescope making has always had an amateur component. Some amateur telescope makers were fascinated by the process itself, while others (like the great observer of the night sky, William Herschel) became amateur telescope makers as a means to their ultimate objective of exploration.

Any new telescope-making book is a big deal, but one that is both new and important is a huge deal. I believe that’s what we have here with the arrival of Albert Highe’s Portable Newtonian ’s a very satisfying, and detailed volume that covers a great deal of territory not explored in any other telescope-making book.Amateur Telescope Making.
