A short history of those who helped us with the initial technical support and funding ; We (Jim a physicist & Rhoda a chemist both with many years of senior level experience) were commissioned to research and build a very accurate replica of the IMSS 2428 telescope for Griffith observatory Ca., the 2427 telescope for Adler Planetarium , Chicago, to build replica's both of and to furnish exploded half models to show their unique interior construction, for the IMSS in Florence Italy ( where the originals are kept) We also developed and furnished several Canadian science centers with beautiful representative models of the 2428 with Galileo's negative and Kepler positive eyepieces.
We provide the reader more accurate and valuable information about How and Why Galileo made them and provide this in various forms for display and other teaching aids or to use or make your own.
The authors can never thank enough all those at IMSS who gave us access to the originals and information about their recent restoration so that we might make the most accurate reproductions of these historically significant scientific instrument for the public so they might learn and enjoy them to their fullness.
