This book would probably appeal to those wanting somewhat greater depth in understanding how telescopes and associated instruments work than is common in a popular science book. The author, a physicist working at the U. Air Force Academy, describes the different ways a telescope can be built (refractors, reflectors, Schmidt-Cassegrians, and so on) and the instruments they by: 9.

The classic history of the telescope is King's book The History of the Telescope, also republished by Dover. While out of print as I write this, Dover is about to release a new printing. Current only throughKing provides a detailed and moderately technical s: 4.

This remarkable chronicle covers many fields, including professional Cited by: As a result of this three-year collaboration between authors David Kriege and Richard Berry, experienced and well-known telescope makers, you now have the opportunity to build a high-performance telescope from 14 inches to 40 inches aperture based on the thoroughly tested designs described in this book.

The Dobsonian telescope takes its name from the astronomer/philosopher John Dobson, who introduced the concept of inexpensive, large-aperture telescopes Cited by: 4. This is the sort of book that I find very hard to rate. It is a paper reprinted in for the th anniversary of the telescope.

Subtitled, “A Practical Manual for Building Large Aperture Telescopes,” this is the book to reach for if you want to make a truss-tube Dobsonian.

Everything is well explained with. Working from Kepler's writings, Isaac Newton reasoned it was better to make a telescope out of mirrors rather than lenses and built a reflecting telescope in Centuries later the reflecting. The first book that I read about astronomy was Pavel Klushantsev’s Story of Telescope, which was translated in Marathi and called दुर्बिणीची The Telescope book.

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. Boreel's conclusion that Zacharias Janssen invented the telescope a little ahead of another spectacle maker, Hans Lippershey, was adopted by Pierre Borel in his book De vero telescopii inventore.

Hubble e-book ( MB pdf) Webb e-book ( MB pdf) NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has been providing amazing images of the universe since April and has led to remarkable discoveries.

Every step of construction is detailedin photographs and diagrams, and the underlying ideas are carefully explained/5. A telescope is an optical instrument using lenses, curved mirrors, or a combination of both to observe distant objects, or various devices used to observe distant objects by their emission, absorption, or reflection of electromagnetic radiation.

The first known practical telescopes were refracting telescopes invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century, by using glass lenses.

The Telescope and Job. The medieval cosmos does make biblical sense. In the Genesis account, man is pictured as the pinnacle of creation, after all. But the new, post-Galileo attitude is equally at home with another strand of biblical thought: the creation as represented in the book of Job.

Galileo's name became synonymous with the telescope. In this frontispiece to Galileo's collected works he is shown presenting the telescope and gesturing toward some of his discoveries in the heavens. The artist has depicted Jupiter and its satellites.
