SDM#018 – 28″ f/3.7

Owner: Barry Clark, Victoria
Primary: 28” f/3.7 made by Steve Kennedy
Known as: Compulsion
Extras: Built for some serious science

Barry Says: “I have been making telescopes for over fifty years, but when the opportunity arose to build a telescope around a fast 710 mm mirror by Steve Kennedy of California, I chose to have it made by Peter Read. The mirror is superb and the finished telescope fully deserves the same description. I called the instrument ‘Compulsion’ because everyone who comes near it experiences a Compulsion to observe.”
