Frans Driesen and his Creations
Club member and Amateur Telescope Maker Frans Driesen showed off his home-built 8" f/6 Dobsonian reflecting telescope and observing chair at the January 2000 club meeting. He described the steps and processes used in its construction, as well as offered advice to other people with aspirations to build their own. Nice work, Frans!
