This is a teleidescope I started last December and finished today. It is made from chestnut wood with a brass eyepiece and a Brazilian rosewood ball keeper. It is 1 3/4” diameter and 10” long with 24 flutes running about half the length. On this one I use 3 1/8”x1”x8” first surface mirrors and don’t really see a whole lot of difference from standard mirrors I used in the first one I made 3 yrs ago. I need to make a box for this one yet.
It is finished with Danish Oil and 3 stage buffed and waxed.
You get some real cool images when you turn it or swing around with it. The difference between this and a kaleidoscope is that this scope makes patterns out of what you see around you instead of some colored chips loaded into the front of it like a kaleidoscope. I enclosed 2 shots of what you see with it.
