Excellent review of the development of the telescope from the 1500s to the first decade of the 21st century. Watson includes information on the technologiical drivers, technical developments and the personalities, friendships and conflicts of the persons involved. Most of the names will be familiar to the reader but in many cases not from the field of astronomy or optics.
