The First Components Arrive

It’s March 24th. A few weeks ago I got the idea to design and build a telescope for a young astronomer in my life. I had the idea that I would build more than just one of these rugged telescopes and lend them out in the community. The first build will be a prototype where I will try to make all my mistakes. The second will be for the young astronomer. First components arrived and I'm getting excited!

  1. 150mm diameter primary mirror

  2. Secondary mirror

  3. Focuser

After taking the physical measurements off of these items I will start the design of a Newtonian reflector in Fusion 360.
