    Default Building a telescope



    Hello! Haven't been here in a while.

    My friend and I are thinking about building our own big telescope, like huge.
    Any suggestions where I can get mirrors?

    Thanks!
    And the stars look very different today.

    How big? Carl Zambuto makes some of the best mirrors around.

    We're thinking like, a foot long lol.
    Sounds expensive, but we're going to make a super cheap tube lol.
    Carl Zambuto you say? I'll have to look into that!
    Thanks
