The design of this telescope was hard enough, but the biggest challenge was making this model enjoyable to build. After all, who wants to make 4 identical copies of each telescope "cylinder"?
In designing the instructions, we broke the model into 2 halves and then married them together towards the end. This split up the building back and forth between the base and the telescope cylinders, adding as much variety to the building process as possible. In other words, making it more fun.
