This fellow is rather ingenious, developing an open frame Newtonian
Telescope which is easily assembled or disassembled in a few minutes,
and offers a really wide field of view (f8), doesn't require a really
expensive main mirror (the fellow sells mirror grinders as well).
Weighing only 30 lb, it is easily transportable to remote locations for
outstanding wilderness star viewing.
