Finished my 8" Dobsonian

After many months of hesitation I finally decided to finish my 8" reflector telescope.

I will be posting several pictures as soon as I can find my camera.

I was able to see some great views of Jupiter and its four moons. We have had clear skies all week, though a bit cold, giving some great oportunities to see some great things.

We even got to see the Orion nebula. Granted, not a Hubble like image but the nebula none the less.

Of course, once one finishes his first 8" telescope it now becomes time to begin work on an even bigger one! So now, I have my eyes and mind on a 12 or 14 inch one!

More coming.
