After having been a few member of the council of the
Workgroup Astronomy of the
University of Ghent (Belgium)
I thought that it was becoming time at last to learn something about
astronomy myself :-)
And since the best method to learn something is still doing it yourself, trying to build a telescope myself seemed the straightforward way to follow.
In these pages, I try to explain what I did and why. Much other pages on the net already exist about this subject, but most of them suppose you've already got some book with instructions; I on the otherhand did (almost) know nothing about the subject before I started this thing, and it shows :-) Also, I want not only to provide a practical recipe but explain too why each step is needed.
As always, feel free to mail your comments!
