Amateur Telescope Making (3 volumes)

£32.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Amateur Telescope Making is a series of three books edited by Albert G. Ingalls between 1926 and 1953 while he was an associate editor at Scientific American. The books cover various aspects of telescope construction and observational technique, sometimes at quite an advanced level, but always in a way that is accessible to the intelligent amateur; the calibre of the contributions is uniformly high and the books have remained in constant use by both amateurs and professionals.

Each volume contains black-and-white photographs and illustrations.

Book One - 510 pages
Book Two - 650 pages
Book Three - 646 pages

All three volumes have slight bumping to the corners of the covers. Other than that, they are in very good condition throughout.
