    Additional Physical Format: Online version: Matthewson, G. Constructing an astronomical telescope. London, Blackie [] (OCoLC) Document Type. An astronomical telescope can be converted to a terrestrial telescope by using an erecting lens. The erecting lens is a convex lens placed b/w the objective and eyepiece such that the inverted image formed by the objective is at 2F of the erecting lens.

    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 and. Note, the book assumes you will buy commercial optics, but there is a section on homemade optics as well. Customer Comment: This book is a great start on building your own telescope. Later I bought Richard Berry's book (Build your own telescope) which actually has more detail and beautiful illustrations but cost a lot more.

The goals of anyone thinking of building a telescope should include optimized performance, weight and s: 9. The Dobsonian Telescope by Richard Berry and David Kriege. 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. 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.

Building a Telescope Theory A B Objective Science and Mathematics Standards Materials In a telescope, the lens held next to your eye is called the eyepiece and is usually a short focal length lens or a combination of lenses.

The lens at the other end of the telescope is called the objective lens. Light from a distant object is focused by theFile Size: KB. Constructing an Astronomical Telescope: G. Matthewson: Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming: Internet Archive.

Galilean telescope or Terrestrial telescope Astronomical Telescope An astronomical telescope is an optical instrument which is used to see the magnified image of distant heavenly bodies like stars, planets, satellites and galaxies etc.

This article presents two methods of constructing a Galilean telescope — a cardboard tube created by the Galileo Project, which inspired our construction, and a PVC-pipe telescope. Surprisingly, in view of the number of practical astronomy books about both buying and making telescopes, and about ideas for different types of observatory, there is little concerning these specific issues.

Which is why we have been prompted to write this book. We have been involved in both designing and building small domed. In its essence, a telescope is an instrument that makes a far away object look closer.

To do this, a telescope has a device that collects light from a distant object (objective lens or primary mirror) and brings that light (image) to a focus where a second device (eyepiece lens) magnifies the image and brings it to your eye.

And when you're stargazing, Orion's telescope cases and covers, observing gear, red LED flashlights, astronomy books and star charts will make your observing sessions more convenient, comfortable and meaningful. At Orion, we are committed to sharing our knowledge and passion for astronomy and astrophotography with the amateur astronomy community.

You, too, can avoid astronomical costs by watching stars through a tricked-out cardboard tube. PM builds one and speaks to John Dobson, the man behind the plans, about the joys of DIY astronomy.

Amateur Telescope Making (ATM) is a series of three books edited by Albert G. Ingalls between and while he was an associate editor at Scientific books cover various aspects of telescope construction and observational technique, sometimes at quite an advanced level, but always in a way that is accessible to the intelligent amateur.

These are all books that I personally own or have borrowed from friends or The St. Petersburg Astronomy Club's library. "Build Your Own Telescope" is one the first books which Company Seven recommends to those persons who are considering the decision of whether or not to build an astronomical telescope, or who have decided to build a telescope.
