Ever since I used the Starfire, I've always crept around another optical treasure that would perfectly complement my refractor. However, not only the price, but also the additional expense of further accessories and requirements for storage and use of the device have kept me from finally buying it. But that is over now!
Early in the morning of the day of astronomy we came back to the Motionlab.berlin and started to prepare our exhibition area. Of course, the self-made telescope should be the eye-catcher on a central presentation platform and we wanted to build interesting and exciting presentations surrounding the telescope.
For the German Astronomietag on March 24th, I packed the dobsonian telescope and lots of other things into my car and headed for Berlin. On Friday, 23rd we planned to finally assemble the telescop and prepare for presentation.
Good news first: We are ready for Astronomietag! Adjustment of the optics is finished, the trusses have correct length, first light successful finished.
