Space is big, big projects take a long time, and this was a big project. Hence lots of time passed since the last posting.


As a space man, I need to be able to scan the heavens, what better to use that old 10-cm lens from the back of the drawer, together with various wood samples to make a custom desk ornament. Sadly, the lack of an eyepiece and general lack of actual optical design in this segmented woodturning means that it barely works as a magnifier. It does work well as a paperweight, and at about 30 cm long, this telemagnifier looks cool on my desk. What more can you ask for.



  1. Nice! Your imaginary world (much bigger than outer space) will be explored pretty well with this magnifier
