No single telescope design is ideal for all user scenarios. When it comes to making telescopes myself, I thought it also wise to develop a progression of telescope design projects through which I can refine my craft rather than shoot for a home-run on my first telescope construction project since highschool.
Designs considered thus far include:
- Paul Baker variants
- Aplanatic Gregorian
- Flat-Field Schmidt Cassegrain
- Houghton Cassegrain
