Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


The ShortTube 80 is the ultimate tinkerer’s ‘scope. It’s so inexpensive that one cannot bear to leave it as it is. That’s one of the great charms of the telescope; it responds well to upgrades and modifications. In this chapter, we’ll be exploring how amateurs have invested extra cash into buying and installing various items of equipment to make a good ‘scope better.
