Re: (IAAC) Dobsonian Base

Hi Harold-

Get Dave Kriege's new book on "Building Large Dobsonian Telescopes"
published by Willehm-Bell (ad in Sky and Telescope and Astronomy).  It has
detailed plans for building an "Obsession-type" telescope.  I have a 20"
Obsession and can verify that the design is great.

Good luck on your project.

Either this weekend or next, I'm building a Dobsonian base for my Meade
10" reflector. Any suggestions, ideas, comments to help me get it right
the first time?
