Don't miss our three-part tutorial on how to make your very own Dobsonian telescope.

That's 3 tutorials, plus supporting material galore on our cover CD, including videos, detailed plans and more.

Get the February, March and April issues for this great series of articles by Britain's leading telescope-making society.

Hi There
can anyone tell me how to get the cover CD and does it have
the mirror grinding tutorial on it, or is it just a case of buying the 3
back issues.

Hi Mick,

We don't sell the CD's separately. You'll have to get the back issues of Feb, March and April for the 3 part Dobsonian telescope project.

The [b][i]mirror grinding[/i][/b] how to is in May's issue (issue 36)with lots of extra plans and information on the CD.

Also you can watch the 40 minute tutorial video on this website here free - http://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/mirror_video.asp

Hope that's what you were after,

All the best,
wgater

Hi Will
After ordering the may issue S@N i was surprised to find that the full 40 minute tutorial
wasn't on the disc i must have misunderstood your reply. I know that its available on the site but
its not practical to have to download every time i need to refer to it, could you let me know how to
obtain the full video on mirror grinding?
Regards

Mick

Hi Mick,

No, the 40 minute video is just on the website. I'm not sure how you'd get it - might be worth emailing the CD editor Chris to see if he can help. chrisbramley@bbcmagazinesbristol.com

What you need is to download & instal RealPayer 11 (from - uk.real.com/player/win/ ). Once you have done this you will be able to download the video (from RealPlayer) & save it to your PC.
