Dobson Teaches Telescope-Making

During an outdoor telescope-making workshop, American astronomer John Dobson (left) supervises one of his students, Steve Focht, during the rough-grinding process to make a telescope mirror, Monmouth, Oregon, July 2, 2012. The Dobsonian telescope, a type of Newtonian telescope on a cannon mount, helped to revolutionize amateur astronomy, making it possible for large-aperture telescopes to be home-made with readily-available materials.
