Telescopic teaching

One of the great International Year of Astronomy, 2009 projects was the Galileoscope. This affordable and relatively high quality refracting telescope was just a little step towards opening up the skies that many could take.

Now a new website, Teaching with Telescopes, uses the Galileoscope as a template for, well, teaching astronomy using a simple telescope. There’s lots of resources and helpful hints about telescope training and the history of the thing.
