Description:

Discover how a refracting telescope works by making one from scratch using common items. This telescope won't have a tube so the learner can see how an image is formed inside the telescope. One lens of a drugstore pair of reading glasses serves as the objective lens of the telescope - the lens that gathers light from stars or other objects. A magnifying glass serves as the eyepiece.
