In 1609, Galileo Galilei first looked through his telescope, and changed science forever. His discoveries provided solid evidence that disproved the prevailing belief that the Earth was the centre of the Universe. Throughout history, scientists such as Johannes Kepler and Sir Isaac Newton further revolutionised the design of the telescope. To celebrate the International Year of Astronomy 2009, Sky-Watcher is proud to present two special commemorative editions as a tribute to this rich ‘heritage’. HERITAGE-76 76mm (3) f/300 mini Dobsonian Telescope “International Year of Astronomy Special Edition” The Sky-Watcher Heritage-76 has been specially designed to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) and the 400th Anniversary of Galileo’s first telescope. This is not only a highly functional precision optical instrument but also a beautiful collector’s piece, desk or shelf ornament, and ideal gift.
