DIY Telescope box

Postby thegoatboy » Thu Aug 22, 2013 2:12 pm

Hello,

A while ago on the cover disk of the magazine, there was a feature/instructions on how to build a nice box to keep a telescope in.

Does anyone know what issue this was in?

Or even better, is it still on the cover disk?

Thanks

TGB

There are printable plans for a telescope case on the October 2011 cover disc - assume that's the one you want. Haven't got the disc to hand, but can probably find it at the weekend if you haven't already got a copy.

Found the Oct11 issue, it's on pages 81 and 82. The cover disc has a calculator that works out the size you need to cut the wood to for your telescope dimensions.

Thanks for the information.

i managed to find the cover disk in a big pile of sky at night disk :-)

Once you pin pointed the magazine it was easy to find the right one

Just need to source some materials and get building.

Thanks
