About This Site

M42 Orion NebulaMy name is Rob Fifarek and I’m dedicating this website to my interest in Astronomy, optics and the pursuit of my hobby of making telescopes. I’ve always have had a fascination with the science of astronomy, and I am always ready to learn more about the subject. I am particularly interested in mirror making, and I am currently making a new 16″ f3.85 plate glass mirror using my fixed post grinding post machine which I built this summer. Here I will explore astronomy, photography and telescope technology.
