Phillip Eganhouse built this Newtonian Refraction telescope with his own hands. Southern Missouri is known for great craftsman but Phillip really outdid his peers. "What's really exciting is when people see the moon up close for the first time, many run home and grab their kids so they can see - that's why I do it". Phillip a theology student plans on taking his telescope to show Bransonites at the Branson Landing next month.
Here's a view quite less impressive than seeing it yourself.
