John Dobson Dobsonian Telescope

It’s hard to deny the impact that John Dobson had on the amateur astronomy hobby.

His introduction of the Dobsonian telescope to the world in the late 60’s in combination with his grassroot outreach efforts through the creation of the Sidewalk Astronomers forever changed the landscape of our hobby.

Below is a unique view into Dobson’s philosophy of amateur telescope making, ATM as it is known in the hobby. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
