Scope Building Sunday - Feb 18th

Another great session of building telescopes. Thanks to everyone who contributed! Matteo, Charlie and Emily put some serious effort into the new Babylon scope, finishing the tube assembly and rocker box in record time.

Terry putting Bumblebee into perfect collimation, and Elliot mounting a focuser on the Blort Simpson telescope.

In addition to building scopes we had Luke and Karl building a new 3D printer so that we can produce telescopes more rapidly. We're hoping to do 2 to 3 per week in the future!

I somehow didn't manage to capture Sue in the photos. She is a local teacher who checked out our building process and took Bumblebee out on loan for her class. She also brought yummy treats for everyone- thanks Sue!
