Description
The Winter 1986/1987 issue of Telescope Making — “the magazine for, by, and about telescope makers” — features the following articles:


-“The Pretoria Eyepiece,” by H.W. Klee and M.W. McDowell


-“A Simple, High-Performance Amateur Telescope,” by David Shafer


-“Building the Manly ‘Flip-Top’ On the Cheap, Down Under,” by Jim Barclay


-“A Counterweighted Roll-Roof Observatory,” by Drew Colfax

-“Changing the Aperture Pupil,” by Dick Suiter


Telescope Making debuted in 1978 in response to Astronomy magazine readers’ demand for more information about how to build telescopes. In the premiere issue, Editor Richard Berry explained the magazine’s mission: “We see TM as a magazine that will help people share their ideas and learn from each other. ... You, and the telescopes you build, are its subject.” Telescope Making ran quarterly until 1992.
