I really enjoyed the book, the writing style is very easy to follow and understan without a lot of technical mumbo jumbo usally found in amature telescope making guides. I also liked the fact that the authors discuss the latest trend in light weight construction, open truss structures.
It starts off with guiding one thru building a small scope and then utilizing that learning process to enable one to have the confidence to go to the BIG light buckets for deep space viewing.
My kind of book, direct and to the point, without a lot of personal anectodal accounts, yet not dry and technical.
If you're looking to build your own large size Dobsonian, then this is the ONE book to have.
