In the November 2012 Sky & Telescope
If you built a telescope in the pre-Dobsonian era, chances are you used it on a mount you made from steel plumbing parts. “Pipe mounts” typically suffered from sloppy bearings, but in this month's Telescope Workshop column, we present David Groski’s ingenious solution to that problem. After you see Dave’s scope, you might want to give this classic design another look.
In this issue's Binocular Highlights column it’s time to pay a visit to one of the most historically important stars in the entire sky, 51 Pegasi.
