The view through the eyepiece of a good Telescope is an experience which often marks the turning point from an interest in telescopes to an overwhelming urge to own one. However, a visit to a telescope supplier and a study of the prices, can deter all but the most passionate of Amateur Astronomers. However, the remedy is a simple one; almost anyone who wishes to may build a Telescope capable of studying the surface of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the brighter Moons of Jupiter, Nebulae and Double Stars.
