Ever thought of holding a meteorite party, well it would be pretty hard without a telescope
The next time your friend says "I wish I had a telescope. It's Lyrids Meteor Shower tonight and we could have a meteorite shower party.", you can whip out your telescope you purchased from OzSpy and really get the party started.
The earliest recorded working telescopes were the refracting telescopes that appeared in the Netherlands in 1608 and were very primitive indeed. Luckily now the average telescope is significantly better and out of all the optical technologies, telescopes are some of the best value buys.
