After making Eyeglasses and a Microscope from scratch, next I set my eyes to the skies and want to attempt a telescope from scratch!

Thank you to Lewis Dartnell again for his help, his book has helped inspired most of the optics series. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/jlN4aX

Special thanks to the guys at American Workshop for their help making the telescope body! http://americanworkshop.com/

|| ABOUT ||
Today, getting what you need is as easy as a trip to the store. From food to clothing, energy, medicine, and so much more, Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself. Each week he’s traveling the world to bypass the modern supply chain in order to harvest raw materials straight from the source. Along the way, he’s answering the questions you never thought to ask.
