400 Years of Astronomical Telescopes

  • These are the proceedings of the meeting 400 Years of Astronomical Telescopes:A Review of History, Science and Technology that took place at ESA/ESTECNoordwijk, The Netherlands, through 29 September - 2 October 2008. The meeting celebrated the 400th anniversary of Hans Lipperhey's patent application on 25 September 1608 for the "spy glasses", the optical system that became the basis for optical astronomical telescopes. The meeting covered the history of the telescope making and usage, key technologies, and political as well as sociological aspects, and all types of telescopes across (and even beyond) the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The 3.5 day program consisted exclusively of review talks given by invited speakers who have been working in or even shaped the field.
