Jim has built a pretty cool telescope, and has decided to share it with you guys.

He does not have any image shrinking software (somebody send him an old, legal copy of Photoshop please), so I posted these pics for him. I'm sure he will stop by and fill in the details.

Here are some more of Jim's pics

Jim: http://www.gimp.org/ free photo editing software. Make your pics 600 pixels across (the ones you send me are 2800 pixels across) and they should load up fine.
