Castor Design used the Aluminum Group Show as an opportunity to further explore an area of interest through the Royal Castor Telescopy Club, a division of its Sciences and Humanities Division.

For the show, Castor has produced a fully functioning Newtonian reflecting telescope. Named after its inventor, this type of telescope has a concave “primary mirror” at its lower end (8” 1200mm f/6 mirror), and a diagonal “secondary mirror” at the end of the eyepiece. The telescope uses a Dobsonian pivoting base to locate its focus, and sits atop a rotating platform.
