The club was originally organized to make a mass purchase of custom molded Maksutov corrector blanks, but it soon became apparent that a newsletter was needed to share information on optics and practical glass working to close tolerances. Ultimately, nearly 200 editions of the Circulars were distributed to members. From this mass of material two 300+ page books have emerged - Advanced Telescope Making Techniques Volume 1 Optics and Volume 2 Mechanical. Chapters: 1. Grinding Tools; 2.
