Software To Help You Build Your Own Telescope

To build your own telescope is to explore an undertaking into the inner workings of a stargazing device. There is no reason why you shouldn't employ the use of a software program to assist you in the process. A freeware optics design software program such as Winspot, by David Stevick, can make building your own telescope that much easier to accomplish. Winspot allows you to do everything from browsing through telescope designs to modifying them or even making your own designs. Once you have settled on a telescope type, you can plug in the configurations and experiment until you come up with the modifications that suit you.
