Astrophotographer and inventor Jonathan Kissner wanted an astronomical telescope, but instead of buying one, he decided to build one himself using a 3D printer. Called ‘Hadley’, this 3D-printed telescope boasts a 114/900mm reflector with a spherical primary mirror and can double as a terrestrial scope for bird-watching purposes.
Jonathan wants this telescope to be as easy as IKEA furniture to assemble using just screws and glue. His main goal was to create an attractive alternative to the shoddy, hard to use ‘hobby-killer’ scopes typically priced in the $100-200 range. More information here. With that said, we can’t forget about Gravity Industries’ electric jet suit with 3D-printed parts.
- Resume Printing Function: Ender 3 has the ability to resume printing even after a power outage or lapse occurs.
- Easy and Qucik Assembly: It comes with several assembled parts, you only need about 2 hours to assemble 20 nuts well.
- Advanced Extruder Technology: Upgraded extruder greatly reduces plugging risk and bad extrustion; V-shape with POM wheels make it move noiseless,...
It is my hope that by releasing this, more people will find an open door to planetary observation and entry level astrophotography,” said Jonathan Kissner.
