Question about Optics
I am 20yrs & i am interested in stars.
I want to build my own telescope. Could you help me with a complete plan?
Go here for complete plans for a Dobsonian telescope.
go for the 8-inch. it's the perfect beginner's telescope.
you'll be able to see deep sky objects (DSO) like planets, galaxies, stars, etc.
the 6-inch is okay, but the 8-inch is better --> bigger is better.
with the 10- inch, you'll see more deep sky objects, but it's heavier and harder to transport.
the 8-inch telescope is a good compromise. you'll see more objects with an 8 inch than with a 6-inch.
also go here for a free star atlas
go to the bottom of "cloudy nights" website for the Updated Version 2.0 star atlas
good luck with this project :D
