All posts for the month July, 2009

Awhile back I posted about a program to bring telescopes to schools. Specifically the Galileoscope. Well this was on my stoop today:

Galileoscope Box

I unpacked it on my dining table and this is what I ended up with:

Galileoscope Unpacked

I tried to follow the paper instructions, which are decent. But I highly recommend the PDF on the Galileoscope site. You can download it here: PDF Download Page

When all was done, this is what I ended up:

Galileoscope Assembled

It is still light out, so I cannot check out any stars yet- but it is pretty clear in Austin today so I am hopefully I can check out some stars or the moon.
