    Doug is checking out his new 1:12 scale model 6 inch refractor telescope on a working German equatorial mount.

    Arthur 1983 build

    Thank you, Elspeth. The color is actually chromium yellow, really bright. I probably should have tried a little color correction in Photoshop. The original photos were taken in 1983 on Kodacolor film. I had them printed as 8x10's, which I still have. I scanned the 8x10's to post the photos online. All of these format changes no doubt affected the color tone! I have a wild plan for the Orchid. I'm an avid amateur astronomer. I want to truncate the roof of the poor Orchid and build an observatory dome with a miniature telescope!
  3. Excellent! I'm new to Greenleaf, researching my second build after completing and Arthur 35 years ago. I'm finding lots of inspiration from builds like this.

    Before microwave ovens, there was steampunk!
  5. Sweet! I found this searching "observatories". I'm looking for ideas on a planned build of an Orchid with an domed observatory bashed into the roof. I really like the scale model of the Space Shuttle on the ground floor!
  6. Super! I found this searching "observatories". I'm looking for ideas on a planned build of an Orchid with an domed observatory bashed into the roof! I hope all of your observers have solar filters on their telescopes, it looks like the sun is still up.

    Nice build, beautiful miniatures! I found this searching "observatories". I'm looking for ideas on a planned build of an Orchid with an domed observatory bashed into the roof!
  8. Nice little telescope! Did you make it yourself? I'm currently putting together telescope as the first step in building an Orchid with an observatory on top.
