A synopsis of Peter Pekurar’s Presentation
This presentation will be about the transformation of a large aperture telescope from a concept to a wonderful portable instrument with superb planetary and deep sky performance. The presenter will also describe a breakthrough process used on this telescope on how to apply a chemical silver coating followed by a protected thin film over-coating that can be performed at home. The process opens a new world of pos-sibilities for low cost and high performance large reflector telescopes.
