Telescope Building! -- TYB Books

The Perfect Gift

TYB Books -- Main Page

We will have books and links here for building your very own telescope at home!  As James Dobson has made famous, with a little work, time and considerably less money, one can build oneself a decent telescope for far less than buying it pre-made.  Of course, if you're a student like me, you run into the problem of having both too little money and too little time, . . .  but hopefully, I will eventually graduate!
