Things to do

This is a list of the things I want to do as part of this project:

  • Build a workshop where I can work comfortably (4 x 3m shed in the backyard)
  • Buy 16″ mirror blank
  • Build a mirror grinding machine from an old washing machine and various other parts
  • Grind and polish mirror
  • Test mirror and fine tune until it is close enough to perfect
  • Build mirror cell
  • Build dobsonian mount
  • First light !
  • Build motor drive and encoders
  • Control motors from laptop to “go to” and for guiding CCD images

By the time I finish all of this I will have ten more things that I want to do.
