ATM -- The Amateur Telescope Makers List


About ATM
English (USA)

The Amateur Telescope Maker's list (ATM list) is a gathering of amateur telescope makers on the Internet. The ATM mailing list allows individuals to exchange ideas, seek or provide help with problems, and to further the hobby of telescope making. You do not need to be an expert to join in. In fact, many of the list members are "lurkers" who read a lot and post little so that they can learn and gain encouragement to tackle their dream projects.

The members of the ATM list are generally very helpful and very friendly. In fact, we feel this is the friendliest gathering of individuals on the 'Net. For more information, visit the ATM list FAQ at
