The Antique Telescope in the Twenty-First Century

Chapter
Part of the Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)

Abstract

We are nearing the end of this broad survey of the classic telescope market. As we have seen, amateur astronomers derive great joy from restoring and using them under the stars. But old telescopes, like any other avenue of technological history, are also sought out by collectors, who can cough up breathtaking sums of money for an instrument with the right mixture of condition and provenance.
