This page describes the telescopes I’m working on or planning – click on the following for details (if there’s no link then I’m still working on the pages)

One of the things I would like to be able to do is cast, slump and anneal my own mirrors. In particular, I would like to recast some existing 10″ 12.5″ and 24″ pieces of glass into 16″ 20″ and 1m lightweight mirrors like below. A project page for this kiln project is coming soon!

I’ve also written a series of articles on mirror grinding that were published in Winnicentrics, the journal of the Winnipeg Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. Check them out here.
