Telescopes & Mount concepts:

Greg Babcock is one of the most successful ATM pioneers in the US when it comes to the idea of big portable telescopes. His elegant telescope designs are made for 'travelling' to the stars: Ultra light weight but showing proper statical rigidity and smart appearance as well as like solid set up functionality.
His advanced designs has been awarded on many Star Parties and they became inspiration to many individual international ultra lightweight telecope design concepts - both: of amateurs and of professional suppliers. He is a true design pioneer of the portable telescope proving that even a large aperture scope can go safely on the road or on a plane!

Without his first published developments, many astronomers would perhaps still today not have a clue how to observe the skies in remote areas with a powerful telescope what has to be carried far away from the city lights...

Normand Fullum is certainly the most famous exceptional 'artist' of telescope making in the present time. His wooden "Dobsonian Dreams" are eyecatchers which may challenge you rather to 'observe' the scope than actually the stars with it! Beside his breathtaking wood crafted sulptural fine art he is one of the most experienced mirror figuring experts in the world of telescope making. He is an artist - awarded again and again, an outstanding craftsman who really loves telescopes and the skies.

Normand is a professional telescope maker and mirror maker. When you are working on a great own ATM project, consider to buy the primary from him.  When you have a nice dark garden veranda or a winter garden or a beautiful place in your house then consider to put one of his telescopes to display and decorate instead of a piano!

...and HE knew it:

"...and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh..."
