The Dobsonian Telescope

£19.99

Product description

This book tells you how you can build a state-of-the-art Dobsonian telescope using readily available materials and supplies. Every step of construction is detailed in photographs and diagrams, and the underlying ideas are carefully explained. As a result of this three-year collaboration between David Kriege and Richard Berry, experienced and well-known telescope makers, you now have the opportunity to build a high-performance telescope with a 14-inch to 40-inch aperture based on the thoroughly tested designs described in this book.

The book is in excellent near-fine condition, with illustrated glossy boards. The covers have only a few light marks and faint surface rubbing. Inside, pages are clean and bright. Includes many b/w photographs, drawings and tables.
