This is my personal site which is dedicated to amateur telescope making and observing the sky. As I've learned a lot from others who shared their experiences on the internet, it seems only natural to publish some of my own. Due to the international nature of amateur astronomy this website is written in English. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments.

Older Telescopes

I build several telescopes in my youth and college years which are lost or are gathering dust. I started with a 6 inch f8 on a split ring mount. Then I rebuild this telescope to a truss Dobson. Finally I rebuild this telescope to a single arm mount. I also build a 4 inch f4.5 to use for travel. I’m still looking for photos of most of these telescopes.

6 inch f8

Some pictures of the last version of the 6 inch f8 and somewhat crappy attempt at an making it ultralight.

4 inch f5

some pictures of an 4 inch f4.5 I build for a trip to the US in 2000. This was the third telescope I build and not the most practical design. Although the telescope preforms well enough, setting it up takes half an hour due to all the nuts and bolts. Because of this I wouldn’t recommend anyone copying the design.

I will post more pictures when I find them.
