1668 newton's reflecter
in1668 isaac newton made a
telescope using a parabolic mirror
instead of refracting glass. though
hard to grind the mirror eliminated
the color distortion found in glass.
the mirror is also lighter then the
lens found in compairable large
scopes. the hubble and all large
modern scopes are newtonion.
this is a model of that scope that
he made in 1668. not alot of
moving parts, but they all work.
