Telescope made from far-sighted glasses
hand made

I read the article of "The way to make a telescope using magnifing glass"(sorry written in Japanese only) in this web pages and then tried to make one using lenses which I have.
Last Summer,I have found the way f making telescope using magnifying glass.

So I tried to make one by myself.
The objective lens is from far-sight glasses sold in one coin shop.

The eye lens is from broken telescope.

The tubes are made from paper and PET bottle .

A friend of mine also tried to make one with his kids at summer vacation and his kid got prize from museum.

The following picture is the moon taken with digital camera using this telescope.
