Galileo's Telescope is Almost Identical to the 1609 Original

I’ve always wanted to own a telescope simply because I’ve had this fixation with starry skies since forever, but as I look upon Galileo’s Telescope, I have another reason to want one.

Simple and, well, gorgeous (simply gorgeous), Galileo’s Telescope was inspired by Galileo’s original telescope created in 1609 (no surprise there, Sherlock Holmes). Designed by Odoardo Fioravanti, this version is almost its twin except for a few minor changes: its modern finish and magnifying abilities.
