Wim De Meester, Probably the best thing that you can do is get a catalog from Willman-Bell and get a couple of the books on building telescopes. I would also suggest that before you tackle the big scope that you build a finder/tracking scope for the big scope. You will need it anyway and it would be a good excersize in tackling the art of making a newtonian scope. Have Fun and Keep Looking Up. Bob May
