50 Things To See With A Telescope
Telescope Birthday (1622)
-- It is quite a common belief that Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei invented the telescope, but this is not strictly true. The earliest workings towards the design of the refracting telescope were made by German-Dutch lensmaker Hans Lippershey in 1608. He referred to his design as a Dutch perspective glass, which he used for seeing things far away as if they were nearby. The word telescope wasn't coined in 1611 by the Greek mathematician Giovanni Demisiani for one of Galileo Galilei's instruments presented at a banquet at the Accademia dei Lincei.

Read: 50 Things To See With A Telescope
-- This colorful edition explores the constellations with young readers, guiding them to dozens of galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. Every page features a helpful telescope view, showing exactly how objects appear through a small telescope or binoculars. John Read taught thousands of students how to use telescopes and explore the night sky. Now, he's sharing this knowledge with you! Even without a telescope, this introduction to the night sky is essential for every child's collection.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
