History & Invention:
In 1608, Hans Lippershey, a German born Dutch citizen invented a refracting telescope in Middelburg, Netherlands. Lippershey tried to lay claim on a device with three times magnification. His telescope had a concave eyepiece aligned with a convex objective lens. There is a story behind goes that he got the idea for his design after observing two children in his shop holding up two lenses that made a distant weather vane appear close. Others charged at the time that he stole the design from another eyeglass maker, Zacharias Jansen.
The lens telescope is still in use today in smaller telescopes, but many larger and more powerful telescopes use a reflective mirror and eyepiece combination that was initially invented by Isaac Newton. Called a “Newtonian” telescope after its inventor, these types of telescopes have a polished mirror at the end of a tube, which reflects the image into an eyepiece at the top of the tube.
