Stockton Astronomical Society presents
Hercules: Treatment for Aperture Fever
Dan Bakken has been an amateur astronomer for over 40 years, and also an amateur telescope maker. His quest has resulted in the 41.2" f/3.9 Hercules telescope including its mirror. He will talk about what brought him to the project, how the mirror was finished by hand, and the evolution of the telescope itself. Dan is coming from Spokane, Washington, and will be hosted by his longtime astronomy comrade Jeff Baldwin.
