Recently I have been fascinated by astronomy and telescopes. I have a small refactor telescope, but it cannot see very far, so I was interested in buying a larger telescope. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to purchase a good quality telescope, so I was trying to think of how I can make one by myself for a cheaper price.
So, my question is, is it possible to use this kind of parabolic solar reflector as a primary mirror for a decent amateur telescope? I am not looking for perfect, crystal clear images. Rather, I just want to see the Moon and the solar system close up for myself! :)
PS: I saw this thread with a similar question, but the answer was focused on high-quality professional telescopes. I'm not looking to do any science with this telescope. Just observing!
