By 1616 he was able of use only three out of about 300 spectacle lenses for a terrestrial telescope and not a single lens was adequate for an astronomical telescope it was clear that galileo’s observations only made sense if there was a sun-centered galaxy. Telescope - the development of the telescope and auxiliary instrumentation: galileo is credited with having developed telescopes for astronomical observation in 1609 while the largest of his instruments was only about 120 cm (47 inches) long and had an objective diameter of 5 cm (2 inches), it was equipped with an eyepiece that provided an upright (ie, erect) image.
In 1609 an italian physicist and astronomer named galileo became the first person to point a telescope skyward although that telescope was small and the images fuzzy, galileo was able to make out mountains and craters on the moon, as well as a ribbon of diffuse light arching across the sky -- which would later be identified as our milky way galaxy.
