Make your own first telescope for less than twenty bucks

 

Astronomy is a science; and one of the great things about this science is that you can make your own instrument to enjoy stargazing with. And you can enjoy the hobby without breaking the bank. Amazon has this neat little telescope making kit. So after dinner you can make the scope and wait for the sun to set then take it out and enjoy it. Learn about lenses, optics and astronomy all in one nice little project.
