helped some new builders

Phoned Brian and son about making a telescope. Referred them to some online resources, like Stellafane. Talked about John Dobson. Tooted my own horn a bit suggesting they buy the current SkyNews magazine. The younger man was keen to build a f/5 instrument with a big mirror. And an equatorial mount! Yes, it can be done but great care will be required. Did a sales pitch for RASC, pushing access to the CAO and 'scope loan program.



And later shared a link to John Dobson's amazing video.
