On these page you'll find details and pictures of the process creating the NAP16 - the 16" Newton Astrograph 

(back to Starworks Observatory main page)

NAP16 is my first ATM project and fortunately it ended up quite well.

My goal was not just to get a fine instrument but also to enjoy the process of learning about optics, design and metal work.

I have decided to make this an Open Source project so everyone interested might build this and even make his own modifications to improve the design.
