I have been designing this telescope since 2008, and it has finally come to reality. Its made of Baltic Birch and Rosewood with brass inlay. The telescope is a 12.5 inch diameter f/5.5 It is finished with serval coats of varnish, with three coats of glossy poly for protection against the evening dew.
This has been a complicated project and almost a burden and certainly above my skill level. I am glad it is over, and I look forward to doing something more useful… like a bed.
