Sidewalk Astonomy With Dobson & Zambuto

In the parking lot of Roth's market, American astronomer and telescope-maker John Dobson (left) watches as mirror-maker Carl Zambuto (of the Zambuto Optical Company) looks through one of his home-made telescopes, Independence, Oregon, July 9, 2011. 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.
