Found an astronomy book from 1837 with instructions on how to build telescopes and drawings of the moon surface.

    @SortOfTested a family friend I know. She's got a whole library of old books. Including the complete original collection of Heinrich Heine, an assortment of german literature and an anniversary edition of mein kampf. Lol. She said I could have the astronomy book

    @Fast-Nop damn it, took me a while. In printed form it's easier and you get used to it after a page or two

    So how do you build the telescope? Does it say how to grind a lens?
