Telescope Projects


This is a brief description of my telescope projects so far. It's a work in progress and I'll be adding as time goes on. I'm creating this site so that, perhaps, it will give others ideas on their propjects. If you have any questions, just send me an e-mail at

The Dave Ek encoder , the Palm DSC program and the Phillips 900 webcam modification are examples of some of the excellent work by others in making the hobby affordable to people like myself.

I have a small mini-lathe which made the construction of few of the items possible.
