Description

The history of the telescope can be traced to before the invention of the earliest known telescope, which appeared in 1608 in the Netherlands when a patent was submitted by Hans Lippershey, an eyeglass maker. Although Lippershey did not receive his patent, news of the invention soon spread across Europe.
