In 1609 Galileo Galilei significantly improved the optical performance of the telescope and began a series of celestial observations that dramatically changed the understanding of the universe and the place in it. This talk will lay out the key developments in the history of science related to astronomy preceding Galileo, describing in detail what is known about the optics and construction of his telescopes.
