Greetings. I am planning to build my first scope, an 8" f6 Dob (modified). I know there's a lot I need to learn before I start this process. Can anyone recommend a good book, or set of books, that would help with the design? How about computer software? I'm not so concerned with the physical design as I already have something in mind. I plan to buy the optics, but know that I'm going to have to mount them a certain way to make it all work right. I appreciate any advice. Thanks.
