AstroMedia Historic Galileo Telescope
This beautiful kit is based on the last remaining telescope that belonged to Galileo (the oldest telescope in the world): a leather-bound show piece with golden ornaments for Cosimo II de Medici, which now is on show in Florence.
With this historically accurate cardboard replica you can experience the great achievements of Galileo yourself. Although the performance of this historic telescope is not comparable to modern ones, it is fully functional and emphasises Galileo’s accomplishments.
High quality cardboard kit with four colour and gold print, complete with glass lenses for 12x magnification and wall/desktop mount.
Length of the telescope: 78 cm
Hint: mount the telescope on a normal tripod with the cheap Tripod Adapter (round)
