When looking into anything, it is always important (and fun!) to study the history of it to understand where it came from (especially if you want to make one of your own!) then you can build upon that knowledge and make your own freaking awesome telescopes! Well, since we talked about the brief history of telescopes, and we are showcasing some awesome homemade telescope designs, it seems only fitting that we start with a few of Galileo’s own telescopes since his were homemade after all (and some of the first), albiet centuries ago lol.
If you are a DIY geek (like most of us lol) then you probably want to run out and build your own telescope right now! Well thats all folks – I hope that this resource helps someone who wants to get into stargazing, or anyone that is already into astronomy that wants to take it to the next level and build themselves an awesome telescope (DIY FTW!).

The potential advantages of using parabolic mirrors—reduction of spherical aberration and no chromatic aberration—led to many proposed designs and several attempts to build reflecting telescopes. Interesting talk on how this guy built a 32″ Relay Telescope and the Observatory that houses it.
Galileo heard about the Dutch telescope in June 1609, built his own within a month, and greatly improved upon the design in the following year.
In 1668, Isaac Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope, of a design which now bears his name, the Newtonian reflector.

The maximum physical size limit for refracting telescopes is about 1 meter (40 inches), dictating that the vast majority of large optical researching telescopes built since the turn of the 20th century have been reflectors.
