Telescope Workshop Photos

As you are aware of the ongoing Telescope making workshop at ABAA, here is an update. Participants are making Newtonian telescopes in this workshop. There has been good progress and from next Sunday they will start polishing the mirrors. Participants are enjoying this new experience of telescope making and are eager to finish and use the telescope to explore the universe. Here are some photos of the workshop.
