Classic 6 Inch F8 Home Brew Telescope

This was the first telescope I ever built. Using the classic Sam Brown text, “All About Telescopes”, I built this telescope with the help of my father using a stainless steel saddle, concrete phenolic tubing and a lot of elbow grease.

I have located some of the parts of this scope and am reconstituting the telescope for use at the observatory and for star parties. More to come as this telescope project moves forward.
