Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring selected articles from the Maksutov Circulars , Edited by Allan Mackintosh. Over a period of 21 years Allan Mackintosh edited and distributed the Maksutov Circulars to Maksutov Club members. The club was originally organized to make a mass purchase of custom molded Maksutov corrector blanks but it soon became apparent that a newsletter was needed to share information on optics and practical glass working to close tolerances. Ultimately, nearly 200 editions of the Circulars were distributed to members. From this mass of material two 300+ page books have emerged which describe a wide range of subjects of interest to the person who has made a telescope and wants to learn more about this fascinating hobby.

Review:

"...overall Mackintosh has done a great service to amateur telescope making. And where will these volumes end up? When not open on the workbench, I predict they will be in the TN's library ? immediately to the right of ATM ? III!" Sky & Telescope magazine
