Griffith Observatory will celebrate the life of John Dobson, telescope builder and inspirational master of sidewalk astronomy who passed away on January 15, 2014, at age 98. Dobson was world-famous for his dedication to opening people’s eyes to the wonders of the cosmos, and his unorthodox methods of building large telescopes at low cost. Today, the “Dob” is the largest, most popular, and most inexpensive form of telescope for amateur astronomers.
