Optical Telescopes, Wich divide in Newtonian Reflectros, Refractors and Catadioptric TelescopesNewtonian Reflectors use mirrors to reflect light into a specific point.Refractor telescopes use lenses to bend and focus light in to a specific point.Catadioptic telescopes use a combionation of lenses and mirros to focus light into a specific place.

The first working telescopes were invented by Hans Lippershey in 1608Others claim that the first inventor was Zacharias Janssen or Jacob Metius

The invention of the telescope has a big connection to algebra. This is because with the telescope people can observe many space objects. The distances in space are measure by light years a light year is equivalent to 9.4605284 × 1012 kilometers. To measure the distances and the location of this objects is necessary algebra, to make conversions, and most important to plot were this objects are located.
