This telescope was originally designed by Pierre Strock. The main goal was to create a large lightweight instrument that could fit in a carry-on baggage. It weights less than 10 kg but still has a 10 inches primary mirror.
Building a telescope requires precision and patience. Basic woodworking skills are necessary to create a strong and accurate structure. Carving and polishing the parabolic mirror is the most crucial step as it will determine the quality of your instrument.
