Make a Telescope

In its essence, a telescope is an instrument that makes a far away object look closer. To do this, a telescope has a device that collects light from a distant object (objective lens or primary mirror) and brings that light (image) to a focus where a second device (eyepiece lens) magnifies the image and brings it to your eye. To make a simple telescope at home, you will need the following:

  • Two magnifying glasses – perhaps 1 – 1.5 inches (2.5-3 cm) diameter (it works best if one is larger than the other)
  • A cardboard tube – paper towel roll or gift-wrapping paper roll (it helps if it is long)
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • A ruler, yard stick, or tape measure
  • sheet of printed paper – newspaper or magazine will do
