Amateur Telescope Making
Amateur Telescope Making (or "ATM") is a hobby that has been popular around the United States for many years. It has always been the least expensive and most rewarding method of acquiring a high- quality telescope. Also, the techniques of Mirror grinding are surprisingly easy to master. Many clubs around Ohio have experienced ATM's and the related equipment. Watch this page for an ever-expanding inventory of Ohio ATM resources.
