In the October 2010 Sky & Telescope

Talented telescope maker Ed Jones makes another appearance in my Telescope Workshop column. Ed's best known for his Chiefspiegler design, but has also made many conventional Newtonians as well, including the compact 10-inch travelscope I profile this month.

Little Sagitta is one of my favourite constellations. I like that its compact size makes a nifty binocular target and that it's a jumping off point for several nice binocular targets, including this issue's Binocular Highlight, globular cluster M71.
