I am building a telescope to house my 10inch mirror and associated optics. I am thinking about a wood tube using and eight or twelve sided configuration.


How does wood behave when temperatures change?

Are there any pitfalls to using a wood tube?

Any success stories about wood telescopes?

Thanks, John
