Marilyn had an opportunity to make a table decoration for a ladies' tea party at her church. She decided to do something astronomy related... She built a small dobsonian telescope as a table decoration.
Marilyn shows off her telescope to the group. Note the use of buttons for the bearings.
There is even a little finder scope.
Here, she is showing the pattern used to cut the cardboard for the base.
This is a wonderful little centerpiece and discussion item. Our congratulations on a simple but very cute decoration.
