Frugal / Do-it-yourself astronomy

Do it yourself astronomy

I enjoy building and creating things, and I apply that to astronomy.  I've built most every tripod for my equipment.  Sometimes it was to save money; other times it was because I just wanted to build something that didn't exist through retail outlets.  I'll share pictures and descriptions of what I have done; perhaps it will inspire you to create a great mount for your equipment.
