The Telescope Project

Before we were married (over 20 years ago) Adam was interested in astronomy, collected several books on building telescopes, and ordered the lenses used in making a telescope. And that's as far as he got.

In each school we've taught at, Adam has wanted to build the telescope with his students, but it never happened.

Until now. This morning, he began briefing Anna and Peter on the process. Then they took a short trip to Lowe's to buy some materials for building it.



We'll keep you posted! When it's finished, we plan to go to Uncle Max's farm in West Virginia in February, to look at the stars in the cold winter sky, with a telescope they built themselves!
