I practice astronomy since 1933 (! was 7) and built my first refractor with a lens of spectacles of my grand mother. When I was 15 I meet Lucien Rudaux who coach my beginings in observation at ocular. Soon my parents gave me a 43mm refractor Vion and I began to observe the moon and sun. After my medicine studies, I polish several mirors an built many telescopes which improve in quality. I have now a little observatory in south of France and a Takahashi 250 Mewlon and continue practising astronomy.
