This homemade 8-inch Dobsonian telescope is a typical ‘beginner scope’ we often recommend as a starter scope. This scope provides an opportunity to understand how easy astronomy can be. It includes eyepieces and a Telrad unity finder.
When borrowed by a beginner, a RASC NB member will provide training and assist with initial observing sessions. A non-member requires a sponsor who is a RASC NB member.
Adrien Bordage built this scope, with the mirror figured/polished by him and Marc Arsenault.
