About this book: The Dobsonian Telescope, A Practical Manual for Building Large Aperture Telescopes tells how you can build a state-of-the-art Dobsonian telescope.

The history of the telescope can be traced to before the invention of the earliest known telescope, which appeared in in the Netherlands, when a patent was submitted by Hans Lippershey, an eyeglass maker. Although Lippershey did not receive his patent, news of the invention soon spread across Europe.

The design of these early refracting telescopes consisted of a convex objective lens. At Meade Instruments we believe that astronomy should be for all to enjoy. That’s why we carry a wide variety of telescopes to accommodate everyone.

From beginner telescopes like the Infinity Series to advanced telescopes like the LX, we carry products for everyone who enjoy astronomy as much as we do. So go ahead, start exploring. "Wolf Telescopes: A Collection of Historical Telescopes is among the most beautifully executed books I have ever seen.

The photographs provide the reader with breathtaking views of, and insights into, the history of telescopes." Neil F. Comins. Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Maine and Author of: "Discovering the Universe".

The book "Hubble Space Telescope: Discoveries" takes the reader on a tour of Hubble's most significant science successes, combined with some of the telescope's technology and history. For more than two decades, Hubble has had a front-row seat for cosmic events: comets bombarding Jupiter, the explosive death of stars, the birth of new solar.

The book also contains thorough discussions of the principles underlying all spectroscopic instrumentation, with special emphasis on grating instruments used with telescopes. An introduction to adaptive optics provides the needed background for further inquiry into this rapidly developing area.

Telescopes for astronomy have existed from as early as the 17th century in the days of Galileo, who used them to observe celestial objects. The first of their kind were made using glass lenses and were used for both astronomical and terrestrial applications. Is there still a Telescope Blue book website.

- posted in Classic Telescopes: I used to have the telescope blue book link saved, but I cant seem to find it. A Google search went to a dead end. Book Description: Starry Nights is a unique and delightful introduction to astronomy designed to give you a complete, clear picture of the sky every night of the year.

Divided into concise, illustrated essays, it focuses on the aesthetic as well as the scientific aspects of stargazing.
