VIDEO: MAKE YOUR OWN DIY DOBSONIAN TELESCOPE


If you ever wanted to own your own telescope to do some stargazing, but do not have the money to afford one, well you are in luck! The Dobsonian telescopes are popular with amateur telescope makers for their ease of design and construction, portability and their use of large optical mirrors. Pioneered by John Dobson in the 1960's, the instrument combines a Newtonian reflector telescope with a unique two-axis movable base. 

The telescope uses a primary mirror to capture and reflect light, a secondary mirror to direct light into an eyepiece, and a focuser to make fine adjustments for viewing. The telescope's size is classified by the size of its mirror. 

In the video below you will see a step-by-step on how to make a 6" Dobsonian telescope. The video describes the planning, design and parts of the scope, as well as the process of building the scope. Once your telescope is finished, be sure to join a local astronomy club to learn more about the sky and share your hobby with others.
