The Astronomical Unit


Amateur Telescope Making

We dedicate this book, with humility, to the memory of the late Tom Waineo. Tom epitomised the most laudable qualities of the amateur telescope maker, giving selflessly of his time and using his extensive experience and wisdom in order to help others. We hope that our efforts will help to keep Tom's star shining.

This highly praised book is a useful addition to any ATM's bookshelf and a complement to the other modern ATM books. There are fifteen projects for the ATM, including mounts, astrophotography and electronics as well as telescopes of varying complexity.
