Over the last twenty years or so I have bought, used, tried, sold & kept a large number of telescopes and accessories.

I’m a bit of an early adopter and enjoy seeing what technology can do for us.

I havent got into astrophotography, but like to think I am a pretty good visual observer. I like nothing better than trying for the most challenging objects.

As a scientist and engineer, building scopes and accessories gives me a lot of satisfaction. 

My 18” is a continuing story of build and re-build. The mirror set is superb and I am continually striving to make a portable mount that does it justice. This story is told here.

Some of my more notable equipment “keepers” are described here.

Over the last ten years I have been slowly resorting a historically important 100 year old telescope. This odyssey is described here.
